Fire hits 9 story historic building in DC
By Alan Etter 
Just before 10:00 PM 1/29, units responded for the report of fire coming from the former Woodward & Lothrop building, 10th & G Streets, NW. 

Engine 16 arrived to heavy fire showing from the 10th St. side.  As firefighters began an interior attack, Operations 6 called for a second alarm.  Fire was evident in a debris chute that ran vertically through the interior of the historic nine-story building. 

After an aggressive 20-minute attack, the bulk of the fire was knocked down and was under control with a half hour. There were no injuries.  Authorities now say the cause of the fire is accidental.  A baseboard space heater appears to be the source of ignition.
