Montgomery County Fire & Rescue units from the 2nd Battalion including Rescue Squad 1 (Bethesda Chevy Chase Rescue Squad), Engine 707, and Tower 51 (National Institutes of Health) responded to the building fire on Connecticut Ave. in Chevy Chase on Monday afternoon. This job was toned out as I was returning from the College Park Engineering Lab fire.
Units briefly had to double check with dispatch regarding the location of the incident since the dry cleaning business’ building is so small and nestled between some larger commercial structures. A slight haze and odor was located inside the dry cleaners building and firefighters quickly cleared the smoke. The incident was placed under control and units were quickly returned to service.

The school is nestled in a neighborhood just adjacent to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The small fire was contained to a water heater in the basement. Firefighters knocked the fire quickly and performed ventilation while the school was evacuated. No injuries were reported.
