“Happening right now at the house on the northwest corner of 3rd and Varnum. I woke up to screams and within minutes had this view from my porch. There’s 4-5 fire trucks, several ambulances and a “mobile air unit.” Smoke is pouring out of the house and I could hear the firemen smashing windows.

Feeling incredibly helpless…. Please send good thoughts to our corner of Petworth.”
