Fire Crews Called to National Conference Center

Fire crews responded to the National Conference Center Thursday afternoon, and people staying there as part of Operation Allies Welcome were evacuated.

People staying at the conference center reported both fire trucks and ambulances. But while the response was large, according to Loudoun Fire-Rescue the emergency was small. An electrical smell was reported in a fourth-floor office, but no fire was found and the room was ventilated.

While the Department of Homeland Security has not permitted press to see the National Conference Center, people passing through the center shared photos of the fire-rescue response on social media.

      It’s odd how DHS and government in general don’t want citizens, the people who are paying for all of this, to see what exactly is going on. It’s like a government agency paying for a report and then hiding the report and claiming the document proves their complete innocence. Thank goodness that’s never happened here!

      Short answer is security. They don’t want the press showing any of the operations as it might risk the security to those being held at the center.
