A large fire erupted at a three-story house in Mount Pleasant tonight.

The two-alarm “heavy fire” began at a house on the 1700 block of Lamont St. NW some time before 10:15 p.m., according to D.C. Fire and EMS.

Though it was immediately unclear how or where the fire started, authorities said it spread to the home’s roof and attic. Several roads in the area were closed while firefighters battled the blaze.

Nobody was injured during the fire, officials said, but six people were displaced.
