Tons of Fire Trucks on Spring Rd, NW


Dear PoPville,

There are at least 4 full-sized fire trucks, 2 EMTs and 2 emergency SUVs all on Spring Rd NW between 13th and 14th Streets NW. I live on Holmead and heard the first 3 trucks pull through and have been poking my head out the door to see if I can tell what’s going on. Within the last 10 minutes or so the 2 SUVs came and are blocking the traffic moving between 13th and 14th. I can only see people coming in and out of a house on Spring (directly across from Holmead), but it doesn’t seem to be a hectic situation. I’m not sure what’s going on. The only thing I can think of is if someone called in a Carbon Monoxide issue or other type of gas leak, but I would think they’d bring a PepCo person out…Any ideas?”
