Good luck this morning if your commute involves 19th Street downtown.
The DC fire department has closed off the street due to what is rumoured to be a gas leak at a restaurant between L and M streets.
A moment of humor came to the traffic jam when the Fire Chief tried to get to the scene via 19th street southbound but was blocked by total gridlock.
Of course you might not find that funny if you are on the 19th street parking lot right about now.
