Firefighters Get Plenty of Pressure Battling Chain Bridge Road Blaze

NBCWashington.com

WASHINGTON -- D.C. firefighters said they had no trouble putting out a fire on Chain Bridge Road Saturday.

Flames spread to the walls, attic and roof of a house. One person was inside the home but got out in time.

Trouble with the low water pressure in the area has been a problem in the past, but firefighters said the pressure was sufficient to fight the fire, pleasing residents of the neighborhood.

The fire was close to the home of former DC School Board Chair Peggy Cooper Cafritz's home, which caught fire in July. Firefighters needed almost an hour to find hydrants with enough pressure to fight that fire.
