There's a truck on fire at 10th and Monroe Streets, NW in Washington, DC. My husband is sitting in our study working on his novel and sees billowing smoke going past our window. He doesn't leave his chair, but does take the time to call out to me about the smoke.
I leap to my feet, run to the street and find 10th Street NW blocked off and a truck with flames coming out of it.
All seems to be under control.
