Fire on King St.

2009 November 22

Just got back from the Sunday afternoon excitement of a fire in the first block of buildings on South King St. With trucks from Ashburn, Leesburg, and Hamilton responding, it looked like it might have been pretty serious. But as best you could tell from the street, the fire seems to have been limited to the alley between China King and the Merrill Lynch buildings. Judging from the smoke and smell, it seems like it might have been an electrical fire.

As we walked by the front of the building, the door was open to China King as well as the stairs to the apartments upstairs and they both had large fans blowing into them. So it was difficult to tell which part of the building was affected.

Pics and more details shortly.
