Old grenades Found in rowhouse in Columbia Heights

“Dear PoP- any idea what is going on at 13th and Park? Cops have been here for about 2 hours, the streets are shut down in both directions, and there are some folks in camo and helmets standing in the street. Seems pretty strange.”

This is def. one of the stranger alerts from fireems:

“Haz Mat- 13th St & Park Rd NW- DC F&EMS Haz Mat, Spec Ops assisting MPD with explosives investigation – old grenades in rowhouse(renovation)”

Further proof that you’ll never know what you’ll find during a renovation. Crazy!

Update 1:18pm from dcfireems:

“update – 13th St & Parks Rd NW – DC F&EMS assisiting MPD w 2 grenades – situation is resolved – DC F&EMS Haz mat, Spec Ops clearing scene”
