Frager’s Hardware, a DC institution, taken down in fire: A 90-year-old DC landmark, Frager’s Hardware was severely damaged and likely destroyed by a four-alarm blaze earlier this evening. The good news is that the fire was contained to the Frager’s building and the only injuries thus far were minor ones to firemen. But the loss to the community is huge, and many on social media left messages honoring the local hardware store.  (Disclosure: My fiancée works across the street from Frager’s and visits the store regularly as a function of her job. When I told her about this, she said, “Oh my god, I was just there yesterday!”)
