The Web site of WRC-TV in Washington is reporting that the branch of the DC Public Library in the District?s historic Georgetown neighborhood is on fire.
From the story:
Its Peabody Room contains a special collection of items pertaining to the history of Georgetown. The fire chief told Spencer that they are aware of the location of the room and will try their best to prevent fire and water damage.
ADDENDUM: Not entirely on topic, but as a longtime dweller of Capitol Hill, I?m saddened to hear that DC?s Eastern Market was also damaged by fire today.
