Early Morning Fire closes Columbia Road in Adams Morgan – Fast DCFD Response, No Injuries

A reader reports (thanks to all who sent emails):

“Heard lots of sirens around 6:30am and just walked down Columbia Rd and saw this. Counted at least 5 fire trucks and 2 ambulances plus some smaller emergency vehicles. It’s the building [El Rincon Espanol, 1826 Columbia Rd, NW] across from mintwood/perry’s and next to sun trust. Hard to tell what’s going on, I didn’t see or smell any smoke and the scene seemed pretty calm and under control.”

    With this, the metro issues, and 395 lane closures, the commute this morning must have been awful for a lot of people.

    DCFD is on the next block. they should provide rapid response here.

    NOOOOOOOO not El Rincon! Been one of my go-to places in Adams Morgan for decades! Hope it’s not too serious.
