St. Arnold’s Cleveland Park & The Abbey “closed until further notice” due to fire yesterday


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:

“Hey everyone! Unfortunately there was a large fire at our Cleveland park location this afternoon.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We will be closed until further notice at Cleveland Park.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We would love to see you at our other two locations and will update the events ASAP!”
