Adams Mill Rd. Fire – Low Water Pressure, Snarled Traffic

Firefighters battling the blaze. More news on this morning’s fire from WTOP, NBC4, WJLA, WUSA9, WaPo and Express, and we have photos from on the scene by area Flickr user lukekb.

The fire is now out, but the four-story building is completely destroyed, displacing residents from 30 units. Notoriously low water pressure complicated firefighting efforts, forcing firemen to run extra hose to reach a stronger water main. A press conference with Mayor Fenty is scheduled for the site of the fire at noon today, and is sure to have photos soon.
