Firefighters responded to an apartment fire at Potomac Towers (2001 N. Adams Street) in the North Highlands neighborhood tonight.

Initial reports suggest a smoky kitchen fire broke out in an apartment on the fifth floor around 5:30 p.m. The blaze was quickly extinguished once firefighters arrived on scene and no injuries have been reported.

Heavy smoke has been reported in parts of the apartment building. Firefighters are working to ventilate the building.

      I was there when this went down. Not much to see, 50 people anxious to get inside milling around the lobby, several people boxed up their cats so the smell of “cat dread” and the sounds of hissy fits.

      The impressive aray of fire trucks encircling the building kept my 4-yo entertained, until hunger set in during the second thirty minutes of waiting for the “all clear” and we ate out back up the hill at Court House.

    Off topic, but ever notice how some mornings if you look the “recent posts” tab on the right hand side of the Arlnow front page, someone is posting mysterious links and letter sequences in the comments section of articles which are over a year old? What is that? Computer robots? A spy code drop? Mental illness? Perhaps a really late commenter who speaks serbo-croatian?
