House Fire in Georgetown Causes Moderate Damage
A home in Georgetown caught fire around 5 p.m. Monday. No one was injured and the fire was quickly controlled.
The fire broke out in the attic of the three-story home, located at the corner of O and 30th streets, according to a Washington Post blog. Flames could be seen at the top of the house when the fire department arrived, but the fire was under control within an hour after it had been reported.
Fire trucks and other emergency vehicles lined 30th Street in two directions during the incident, according to Carol Joynt.
The cause has not been determined and the fire caused moderate damage to the residence.
The home belongs to Mia Lovink, who has lived in the house for several years, Joynt said. The home is half a block away from another Georgetown fire on the 3000 block of O Street in October 2009.
