Washington, DC - Three adults were displaced, but nobody was injured, during a Southeast DC apartment fire on Monday, March 8th. DC’s Bravest were dispatched at 4:28 P.M. with a Box Alarm assignment to 313 Parkland Place SE, an occupied two-story apartment building. A Working Fire dispatch was requested when first arriving units reported fire showing from the second floor. An aggressive interior attack quickly knocked down the flames in the apartment of origin, although there was slight extension to the attic. The displaced residents, all adults, were provided assistance by the American Red Cross. Fire investigators were on the scene looking into the cause.
