Two people were hospitalized Sunday afternoon with life-threatening injuries after firefighters rescued them from a Northeast D.C. house fire.
D.C. fire officials are investigating an order that directed firefighters to fill a private swimming pool over the weekend in the midst of an onslaught of emergency calls related to Friday's storm.
Three people were stabbed Monday afternoon in two attacks reported within minutes of one another in a Northeast neighborhood, a D.C. fire official said.
A D.C. fire department spokesman has been placed on administrative leave for comments he made online characterizing a protest by firefighters against fire department leadership as "racist."
Comments made by a senior fire department spokesman on his personal social media accounts that characterized protests against the D.C. fire chief as racist disappeared shortly after the spokesman confirmed he was the author.
D.C. firefighters and department officials are disputing whether orders were issued to rein in the possibility of protests at Mayor Vincent C. Gray's State of the District address, scheduled for Tuesday.
The D.C. government has temporarily halted use of one of its most popular Twitter accounts in order to get a tighter handle on information disseminated about emergency operations.
Firefighters pulled a 50-year-old man and a 70-year-old woman from the second floor of a two-story single family home, D.C. fire department spokesman Lon Walls said.
First responders performed CPR on the woman, who was unconscious when she was rescued from the home, Mr. Walls said.
