Got a lot of queries about this one. You can see video sent to me of the smoke above and DCFD’s response below:
We were investigating an unusual odor. Found nothing harmful. The helicopter was not related to our response.

The Mayor’s office also responded to queries:
“DC water is working on the pipes on 7th/Ingraham and 7th/Hamilton St NW. Fire/Ems cleared the area and deemed it safe. The project should be completed by mid- morning.”
Tom notes: “It burned until after midnight. Non toxic burning plastic sounds reasonable.”
