D.C. firefighters called in the police after finding what appeared to be a weapon inside a home on fire Monday night.

The fire broke out about 7:30 p.m. in the basement laundry room of an off-campus home where American University students live.

While putting the flames out, firefighters came across what looked like a gun and called police.

An officer at the scene told News4 it was just a BB gun.

No one was injured. The house suffered significant damage.
