"There have been reports of a four-alarm fire at Frager's Hardware store on Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast D.C. right on Capitol Hill. A tremendous amount of black smoke is billowing through the streets with firefighters on the scene trying to fight through the endless amount of smoke visible from miles away. More than 100 firefighters are on the scene this Wednesday evening, according to WTOP.
D.C. Councilmember Tommy Wells claims that the fire has spread to at least one other building south of 11th street, expressing that this is "a volatile situation because of everything that is stored at the hardware store." Adding on that "This is a really dangerous situation for our firefighters."
While we currently aren't on the scene, there are many residents nearby tweeting what's happening over at Frager's."
