Artwork unharmed in fire at Washington’s Corcoran Gallery
WASHINGTON (AP) – A fire at the Corcoran Gallery of Art was extinguished early Tuesday and no artwork has been damaged.
D.C. fire department spokesman Pete Piringer said the fire was reported about 4 a.m. and was caused by an overheated kiln in the ceramics building, located in the courtyard of the museum. He says the fire caused damage to the roof and some ductwork.
Piringer said no artwork was damaged by the fire and no injuries were reported. The fire is under investigation.
