(Updated at 9:53 a.m.) A Dupont Circle salon burned in a one-alarm fire early this morning, said D.C. Fire and EMS officials.
Firefighters rushed to Salon Mimosa (1706 Connecticut Avenue NW) this morning around 4 a.m. to battle the blaze. Fire and EMS spokesman Oscar Mendez said no one was injured in the fire and added that it was contained to the salon’s first floor. The fire was extinguished in 10 minutes, Mendez added.
The scent of burned plastic and wood lingered in the air early this morning, a remnant of the morning’s fire. An employee who was busy clearing debris from the burned-out store said he didn’t know how the fire started.
A reader chimed in to tell us that that other businesses along the block were closed this morning.
