Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Huge fire at the Washingtonian gas station at Q and Wisconsin. The station building was seriously damaged. Los Cuates was damaged as well by smoke and water and was closed. One individual was injured, but given the size of the fire, it’s a wonder that more people weren’t hurt.
  • Cady’s Alley finally fills up.

Fire at Georgetown Hospital?

Reader Kathleen reports to the Georgetown Metropolitan about a troubling scene this morning at Georgetown Hospital. She writes:

About 10 firetrucks and 6 ambulances, along with other emergency vehicles stormed into both hospital entrances at about 9:30 this morning. Some firemen looked to be leaving their vehicles on reservoir rd and running toward the hospital.

Scary stuff. Anyone see this or know more about it?

Small Fire on Avon Pl.

Small Fire on Avon Pl.

About five engines responded to an alarm on Avon Pl. However, by the time GM got there (no less than four minutes after the first engine drove by) it looked like whatever it was was under control. Seems like overkill for what seems to be no worse than a grease fire, but that’s better than underkill GM supposes. Anybody know what’s up?
