Georgetown Cupcake briefly evacuated after suspicious odor

Georgetown CupcakeFlee!

Customers and employees of Georgetown Cupcake were briefly evacuated from the store’s M street location after people inside smelled something other than the sweet smells of baked goods and overdone stardom. Fortunately, the smell didn’t originate inside the store, but rather from a manhole explosion about two blocks away on the 1000 block of 33rd st. that happened minutes before. The store was given the all-clear and has been permitted to reopen.

No one was injured in the manhole explosion, though, at one point, onlookers reported that fire was coming out of the hole. Pepco was notified and the street was reopened at about noon.
