WASHINGTON, D.C. — DC Fire is working on what they’re calling a “manpower intensive operation” in order to knock down a brush fire near 42nd Street.

They have taken three fire engines, one truck and a brush unit to battle the fire. The fire is apparently over a “large area deep in (the) woods”.

So far, DC Fire has knocked down the perimeter fire and are working on pockets of fire in the upper levels of dead trees.

They say it is an “extended” and “labor intensive” job. There is no word on when the fire will be fully extinguished.
