dc landmark devastated
posted by soe 11:07 am

Eastern Market has burned in a fire that took 160 firefighters two hours to get under control. The Washington Post reports the story here.

The only consolation is that no one was hurt.

D.C. is noted for its national landmarks. Eastern Market was one of our city landmarks — and an anchor on Capitol Hill. Its loss tears at the heartstrings of the whole city. I hope rebuilding begins as soon as the investigation is concluded and that all the small business owners from inside who lost their livelihoods survive in the meantime.
