Fire in 3-story Georgetown house

By Erica Johnston

Fire broke out late Monday afternoon in a three-story house in Georgetown, the D.C. fire department said.

Flames leaped from the roof of the house in the 1400 block of 30th Street NW, according to fire department spokesman Pete Piringer.

The fire, which apparently burned in the attic, caused moderate damage to the house, he said.

No cause was immediately known for the fire, which was reported about 5 p.m. and brought under control within an hour.
