The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - BY MARTIN WEIL martin.weil@wash­

Con­struc­tion work has its dan­gers, and some­times not even a church, and a prom­i­nent one, too, can pro­vide sanc­tu­ary, as a worker learned in Chevy Chase on Satur­day.

Mont­gomery County fire and res­cue per­son­nel res­cued the in­jured worker from the roof of All Saints Church on Chevy Chase Cir­cle, author­i­ties said. The man’s in­juries were not thought to be life-threat­en­ing.

In another in­ci­dent in­volv­ing in­jury, two peo­ple were taken to a hos­pi­tal af­ter a fire in a house.

The kitchen fire broke out about 7 a.m. in the 10300 block of Lo­gan Drive in Po­tomac.

The blaze forced two oc­cu­pants up­stairs and fire­fight­ers res­cued them from the se­cond floor, ac­cord­ing to Pete Piringer, a fire depart­ment spokesman.

The pair were taken to a hos­pi­tal with in­juries not thought to be life-threat­en­ing.

Piringer de­scribed the cause of the fire as elec­tri­cal. He said the fire caused about $150,000 in dam­age.
