Earlier today I walked by the scene of the house fire at 2600 24th St. NE. One person was transported with serious injuries. Two firefighters were transported with minor injuries.
While the cause of the fire remains under investigation, this is a great opportunity to confirm that your smoke detectors are working properly. The DC Fire and EMS Department installs smoke detectors free of charge to residents, simply call 311 or request one online by clicking HERE and selecting “FEMS – Smoke Alarm Application” from the drop down menu.
