7 residents displaced after early morning house fire in Northeast DC

Seven residents have been displaced after an early morning fire broke out and damaged two homes in Northeast, D.C.

The fire took place around 1:30 a.m. on the 2100 block of Half Moon Place. Firefighters were able to contain the blaze before it could cause significant damage to the adjacent buildings.

Firefighters found flames stretching up the rear exterior of a two 1/2-story dwelling, extending to its interior, attic, and part of an adjacent home.

Video posted to Twitter showed the back face of the row home almost fully engulfed. Fire crews were able to fight back the blaze before it could cause severe damage to neighboring buildings, D.C. Fire and EMS said.

 

There were no injuries. The regional Red Cross has been contacted to assist those displaced from the two homes directly affected.

The fire’s cause was still under investigation Monday morning.
