Ok, did the fire happen on Monday,the 11th? Per the OP the Daily Caller quote said they responded on Wednesday? I guess it's just a typo...
A neighbor described seeing a large number of police and firefighters outside the home shortly before 4 p.m. on Monday
In the "It couldn't happen to a nicer person" category poor Dianne Feinstein's DC house caught on fire but apparently she's safe.
Emergency personnel respond to house fire at Dianne Feinstein’s DC compound
Emergency crews extinguished a house fire at the Washington, D.C. compound of California Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Wednesday afternoon, according to local officials and an on-scene witness.
A D.C. police spokesman confirmed to The Daily Caller that there had been a house fire at the “Willow Oaks” location – 3300 Nebraska Avenue NW — and had blocked off the street Monday afternoon. Tweets from the department noted that the fire had been contained.
The home is owned by her investment banker husband, Richard C. Blum. Washington Life described the home as a 1936 French Renaissance revival estate. Tax records list it as being worth $6.3 million in 2013.
A neighbor described seeing a large number of police and firefighters outside the home shortly before 4 p.m. on Monday. In an interview, the witness said: “She occupies probably a third of the block in a walled-in compound.”
So actually it's more than "just" a house and is referred to as a compound. The house is worth $6.3 million and she owns a third of the block and it's walled in. How nice for her considering the 47 million Americans on food stamps, the homeless veterans, etc, etc.
I only have one question considering the police response and neighborhood lock down. Wonder how the fire started?
I guess taxes in California will be going up, by about 6.3 million.
As for the cause?
Rumour has it, that is where Obama kept his pants.
On January 20, 1980, in San Francisco, California, finance capitalist Richard C. Blum (born in 1936) and the ambitious Democratic Party politician Dianne Feinstein (born 1933) were married in a wedding ceremony at San Francisco City Hall.
They exemplify power as it is now wielded in the higher circles of the class system of the U.S. today, and illustrate well the dismal results of this system. This system is best characterized as a plutocratic kleptocracy, completely lacking in authentic democracy, operated by and for corporate racketeers, in short, a dictatorship of big capital, the top 1% of wealth holders, which makes up a ruling class.
