First, WUSA (from DCist) reports that there was a fire at 1200 Delaware Avenue on early Sunday morning. From the article:
The early Sunday morning fire is believed to be accidental, but an investigation is underway. I walked right by that apartment building yesterday afternoon and noticed some broken glass on the sidewalk and a window screen dangling from the fence, but I didn't realize the debris was due to a fire. Then, last evening, I noticed quite a few fire trucks on the 200 block of G Street. However, I didn't investigate to see which building might have been on fire, since I was running late for dinner. Does anyone know if there was a fire last evening around the 200 block of G Street?A 66-year-old man was taken to the hospital in critical condition after being rescued from a fire that broke out in his apartment. The man was brought down a ladder from his fifth floor unit 1200 Delaware Avenue SW around 4:00 Sunday morning. He suffered from severe smoke inhalation.
