Fire Breaks Out At The Watergate

Tyler Durden's picture

In what may be a very symbolic, if not necessarily humorous flame out, D.C. Fire and EMS are working to put out a blaze Wednesday afternoon in the Watergate complex. The fire is on the 13th floor at a building in the 700 block of New Hampshire Avenue NW, officials said. Several floors have smoky conditions, officials said quoted by NBC.

The blaze supposedly broke out as Washington focused on another political scandal as Donald Trump was blasted BuzzFeed and CNN over a “fake news” report.  It's not clear whether the building has been evacuated.

A Twitter user named Jocelyn (@jocemiller) posted about the fire about 1:30 p.m. "All of a sudden we look out the window and see a condo has caught fire in Watergate 700," she posted. "DC FD is on the scene now."

No injuries are reported, fire officials said.

Located in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of the US capital, Watergate is made up of five distinct-looking buildings overlooking the Potomac River and Rock Creek.

At this moment, there appears to be no connection between events that took place in 1972 at the Watergate Hotel, the subsequent abbreviated tenure of Richard Nixon, and the flaming dumpster fire that erupted between the president-elect and members of the press.

Russian Forrest [Fire] Gump is sorry he started a blaze in the middle of your Black Panther Party.

The elite love these number games even though most don't.

Jesus Christ was killed on the 7th of April (4), so the numbers 4 and 7 are related to the death of a martyr. They also add up to 11.

DuneCreature's picture

Aaaah, well you are the numbers man, pf,.

Please keep us apprised of any new developments in the area of important dates and numbers.

Numbers escape me unless they turn red in the ledgers or some stack of pesky calculations doesn't add up on something I'm trying to build.

I'm serious.

Something tells me the only numbers the CIA cares about are the numbers in their many hidden and numbered bank accounts.

It is their way of giving messages right out in the public.

Especially when they repeat and insist on numbers memes.

Chairman Corker jumping all over Tillerson for not wanting to start war w Russia.

And now his poodles have joined in. Oh brother. If anything Tillerson's cool composure is impressive.

   I can't stand Corker. He sucks his fucking dentures like pig, while he's bloviating his B/S. I feel sorry for that microphone.

  Get a fucking toothpick Corker. YUCK!!!

Now Rubio is trying to talk shit about Duterte, but has mispronounced his name 3 times. 

I knew he was a tool, but he's barely literate. How embarrassing.

 Pope Franky Bergoglio's company, the current CEO of the pedophile mob in Vatican City, Catholic Church Inc. used to own this pile of rubble back in the day. I wonder if they still do? God must be pissed again!

Does Bob Dole still live next to Monica Lewinsky in the Watergate? If Dole is still using Viagra he and Monica may have accidentally started the fire.  She is really hot.
