1 Firefighter Injured in 2-Alarm Fire in Northeast DC

One firefighter was injured while battling a 2-alarm fire in Northeast Washington Wednesday morning. 

Firefighters were called to a commercial building in the 3100 block of Bladensburg Road NE just after 2 a.m. 

Fire officials say the fire was difficult to fight because of the building's depth and difficult access. Firefighters worked for an hour and a half before the blaze was declared under control. 

One firefighter was taken to the hospital for heat exhaustion, fire officials say. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation. 

Fire officials say Bladensburg Road is expected to be closed through the morning rush hour.
