Firefighters in the Nation’s Capital were kept busy during the daylight hours yesterday with a number of fires. Two of them received some attention from the news media and the fire media. Let’s start with the second one at 1923 2nd Street, NW. It came in at 3:41 PM. According to DCFD.com Engine 6 went on the scene with heavy fire showing on side A of a two-story end of row house. A second-alarm was dispatched. Spokesman Pete Piringer says the fire apparently started in the basement and spread to the upper floors. Several firefighters received minor injuries. 

The raw video below is from DC Fire & EMS Department photographer Vito Maggiolo.   


The earlier fire was in the 5100 block of B Street in Southeast in the 11:00 hour. One firefighter suffered an injured ankle. The fireground audio from that fire is below, along with some news video.
