News helicopters are circling above and the streets are blocked off around Vermont St. and University Avenue in Hillcrest, where a building is on fire. It began around ten minutes ago, and firefighters are still in the process of subduing it. I hope no one is hurt! If you're driving, I'd avoid the area for a little while.
View from my window right now. You can't tell from the image, but I can see flames.
