DeEvening Links: Cold ones under fire

Keep your beer at home, guys. (Matt McClain - FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
Firefighters are hard-working people. Can you blame ’em if they like to take a load off after a tough call and pop open a brewski? Apparently you can, if they’re doing so in the fire house. WTOP’s Mark Segraves reports that Fire Chief Kenneth Ellerbe shut down Engine 9 on U Street NW for two hours after personally discovering a case of beer in the fridge there. Best to clean that stuff up before the boss arrives.
