WASHINGTON — Six adults and five children had to leave their homes after a fire at two adjacent buildings in Northwest D.C.
D.C. Fire and EMS said there were no injuries in the fire that occurred on the 1300 block of North Capitol Street.
When firefighters responded to the scene around 12 a.m. Monday, there was heavy fire on the roof decks of two four-story dwellings.
Firefighters said they were able to confine the blaze to the roof decks and other rooftop storage structures, preventing the fire from moving downward.
Officials are still investigating the cause of the fire.
