If you’re trying to drive crosstown right about now, good luck.
There are at least five fire trucks converged on 19th and L Streets NW, completely blocking the intersection.
I didn’t see any smoke and the firefighters were not in too much a rush, so its probably a false alarm or low-level issue.
No matter, drivers will be issuing a few curses in the ensuing traffic jam.
