A reader writes that-
1) A fire gutted a house on the 900 block of 3rd St NE yesterday. The wood-frame house had already been dilapidated and may have been unoccupied. Inbound rush-hour traffic on K St was snarled as MPD blocked the westbound lanes at 4th St, forcing traffic to turn left there. 3rd St was also closed on the block of the fire.
2) An embarrassing eviction notice has been posted on the former leasing offices of Senate Square in the Railway Express Building (900 2nd St NE, across the street from the aprtments). According to the court summons, the defendant "United Enterprises LLC" owes $60,000 in back rent. Senate Square is managed by Bozzuto Management, so I'm not sure what connection if any they have to the defendant. But the leasing offices were the last apparent use of that space.
