October 7, 2016: Story & Photos By Elliot J Goodman
Friday afternoon October 7th, DC Firefighters were dispatched to 5016 2nd St. N.W. with multiple calls reporting a building fire.
Units shortly arrived in the front with smoke showing from the eaves of a two story apartment building. E-14 arrived in the rear and had fire showing.
The fire had extended from the basement all the way to the roof. The building apparently vacant was in deplorable condition and companies making an initial interior attack and search used extreme caution.
As the fire progressed , a Second Alarm was requested and the fire was brought under control shortly there after.
