Connecticut and Ordway Street, NW
Ed. Note: I stopped by to get these photos yesterday and it was the biggest emergency response I have ever seen. These photos don’t do justice to how many responders where there. There were at least two ladder truck, 3 or 4 pumper trucks, multiple police cars, and other fire department vehicles.
Thanks to Eric for passing on from St. Arnold’s Cleveland Park & The Abbey yesterday:
