A solvent-like smell detected in a range of home east of Eastern Market brought several fire trucks and a two-truck HazMat unit to Capitol Hill this afternoon.
Residents who discovered neighbors with the same problem decided to call the city authorities. The homes affected range from 10th St. SE, Independence Ave, C Street SE, and South Carolina Avenue. The bathroom was commonly reported as the site of the suspicious odor.
After investigating, firefighters could not determine the cause of the odor and referred the matter to DC Water Authorities (WASA).
