“I just passed down Wisconsin Ave in Glover Park (a little after 8am) and there are at least 20 fire trucks and police cars. The photo doesn’t really do it justice, I’ve never seen anything like this. I didn’t see the fire but there is a strong smell of smoke on the street. I hope everyone is okay.”
