More Amazing Shots of the Electrical Fire at 1875 Connecticut Ave, NW

Thanks to PoPville flickr user Dallas Lillich for uploading these incredible shots of yesterday’s electrical fire in north Dupont Circle. As a result many parts of Adams Morgan lost power.

“The fire department moved spectators further back and established a new perimeter, explaining that if one of the vehicles blew up, ‘you don’t want to be around for that.’ Shortly thereafter, purple smoke began billowing from the building. I’m guessing this had something to do with chemicals used by the fire department. Or maybe some things just burn purple. Hilton guests looked bewildered streaming in and out of the hotel directly opposite the building.”

And across the street:
