Fire at Sweet Mango Cafe at New Hampshire and Georgia Ave, NW

Thanks to a reader for sending the photos of this sad news on Sat. night around 8:30pm.

Another reader writes:

“Literally, the building was on fire. From all appearances, nobody was in the building and the fire was under control shortly after I shot this video. After I stopped shooting, the fire department put a ladder up on the building next to the patio the blaze was on and used a hose to douse the flames. Lots of fire department personnel on the scene, along with the usual array of ambulances and squad cars. Honestly, didn’t seem like a huge deal and looks like the situation was handled quickly and with a fair degree of ease.”
