By Clarence Williams

D.C. firefighters rescued several people from a burning building Thursday night in Northwest Washington, officials said.

Firefighters were dispatched to the 100 block of Kennedy Street about 10 p.m. for the report of a fire in a two-story building, said Pete Piringer, a D.C. fire and EMS spokesman. Downstairs, authorities found a fire. Several people were rescued, but it was not clear which floor they were on.

Emergency crews were evaluating the condition of people at the scene, Piringer said.
