Today at around 11:30 am a cloud of smoke was spotted above Pizza No. 17 on the 1500 block of 17th Street NW. There was no actual fire damage to the restaurant, and the smoke was apparently the result of some problem with the oven ventilation ducts.
The street was fast filled with fire engines, at least seven, and two ambulances. Pizza No. 17 Owner Payam Yazdani said that he was glad no one was hurt and that there was no actual fire or fire damage. Pizza 17 opened in March 2011.
