A reader sends in the photos and writes:

“Pretty big fire at the Oaklawn apartments on 16th St NW around 9:30 PM. Flames were shooting out of the window but the fire department arrived quickly and put it out fast.”

DCfireems tweeted:

“3620 16th St NW – fire on 3rd or 4th fl

Update – 16th St NW – bulk fire knocked – FFs moving smoke out – some residents evac, others sheltered in place – 6 sty apt bldg”

  • So, Just Sayin’

    Meth lab or kitchen fire?

  • noodles

    From the post, I am assuming that no one was hurt? Hate to see these things but hopeful that only property was lost, not lives.
