Fire evacuates The Riviera in Bethesda (Photos)

A trash room fire caused an evacuation of The Riviera condominiums at 4242 East-West Highway just before 8:00 PM tonight. Over 75 Montgomery County Fire and Rescue personnel responded to the scene, according to MCFRS spokesperson Pete Piringer. The fire was extinguished quickly, but smoke has traveled to the upper floors and has to be aired out.

No injuries have been reported, but East-West Highway has been closed temporarily.
