On Wednesday May 9th 2018 about 330pm Friendship Fire Association was alerted for a multiple alarm fire at 6500 Chillum Pl NW.  DC Fire Department arrived to find heavy fire conditions in a 2 story extreemly large irregular shaped warehouse.  As time progressed through out the evening fire conditions deteriated.  With limited access between the front and the rear of the building it was determined that the best course of action for FFA was to have 1 Canteen operation in the front of the building and 1 Canteen operation setup in the rear of the building.  After all said and done FFA responded with 8 Members, 2 prospective members and 1 past member staffing 2 Canteens operating for about 25 hours.  FFA was also assisted by American Red Cross NCR who provided 2 dinners and a lunch during our 25 hour stay.
