House collapses in NW Washington
Crews trying to cap a gas leak apparently triggered by a house collapse in Northwest Washington on Friday morning, WJLA reports.
Investigators suspect construction work being performed on a rowhouse in the 200 block of Morgan Street NW led to the collapse of the home next door, which then appears to have ruptured a gas line.
The work was being done on a property that had been vacant for about a decade. Residents of the home that collapsed heard and felt what they thought was an earthquake. They fled outside and escaped injury.
