I am including some pictures I was able to take with my phone with more to follow.
UPDATE: I originally reported this was the Turner School on 1500 Mississippi Avenue SE but it may actaully be the Mildred Green School according to Google Maps. It was the school on the corner of 15th Street and Mississippi Avenue in Congress Heights. Will update the blog when I can confirm the actaul school name.
UPDATE UPDATE: From Shanelle Simms the Mayor's Liaison for Communty Relations and Services - Ward 8.
There was a fire at Turner@Green ES, 1500 Mississippi Ave SE. Parents will be notified as soon as posible.Thanks!
