Firefighters Respond To 1300 Block of E Street

By Marc Borbely, 536 13th St. NE

Engine 10 was the first of multiple fire engines to arrive Thursday evening on the 1300 block of E Street NE, responding to a report of a fire at 1348 E.

According to Lieut. Dipietro, firefighters gained entry into 1348, which he said was a vacant building, and investigated.

Firefighters found that the smoke coming from the roof was actually coming from the fireplace and chimney of 1350 E St. NE.

Because of the wind, Lieut. Dipietro said, the smoke had looked like it was coming from 1348. The door at 1348 is shown, above, at 9:55 p.m. §
