Building Fire at Food and Drug Administration
December 31, 2005
Rescue Squad 15 was dispatched on the Box Alarm for a reported building fire at the Food and Drug Administration campus in the 10900 block of New Hampshire Avenue. Units arrived in the scene with smoke showing from a four story office building. The fire involved a large number of ceiling tiles in a basement storage room. The fire was confined to the storage room and created heavy smoke conditions on the upper floors. Extensive overhaul was required and units operated on the scene for quite some time.
