Thanks to readers for sending in the following details. Earlier today, around 9:45 a.m., there was a fairly large fire at 600 Irving Street, NW. This is located on the south side of Irving between Warder and Georgia Avenue. DCFD’s response to the fire was significant and close Irving to traffic well after 11:30 a.m.

DCFD described the fire as being a heavy fire on the on the 2nd floor in a 2 story middle rowhouse. Over 50 firefighters responded to the fire, which was brought under control in under 15 minutes and quickly knocked down. There were no reported injuries.

Readers familiar with this property may recall that in the past they have been among the houses in the neighborhood that has some decent decorations for Halloween.

I’m glad that there were no injuries and hope the damage is not significant enough to prevent a speedy repair.

    And she was always cleaning the streets! Sweeping the sidewalk. She did a beautiful decoration on her front yard. That house always looked beautiful. It’s a shame.
