We have been on the scene of a five alarm fire at 3145 Mt Pleasant St, NW
since 1am this morning.
Luckily no one was injured.
The fire department's response was great and the water pressure was superb.
This horrendous fire affected six buildings including the Meridian Hill
Baptist Church. About 200 people have been displaced. Metro buses were
brought in to keep people warm before moving everyone to the Columbia
Heights Community Center at 15th and Girard St, NW. We have been working
with the residents all morning to attend to their human needs.
Low-income residents were the highest affected.
Neighbors' Consejo is taking food and clothing donations at 3118 16th St,
NW. Please consider making a donation. You can reach Evar Sandoval at
(202) 234-6855 for more details.
