Explosion last night around 11 pm?

I've heard a few questions and reports about this, anyone know anything? Maybe it was a car fire?
Does anyone know what the hell this explosion was in Park View / Columbia Heights late last night close to 11:00pm?

I was on the 2nd floor of my house on Kenyon St [Kenyon and Georgia Ave] and it sounded/felt like something blew up in the alley or within a block or 2 radius.

All my neighbors came out wondering what was going on.

Never heard any sirens, saw a police car or two, but they were just driving by.

It was like nothing had happened.

I definitely heard it, but will all of the construction on Sherman, assumed it was just a truck going over the metal plates too fast.

I heard it too. One at 11ish, but then again at 3am or so. I was fortunate (?) to be out at 3am walking past the corner of 14th and Fairmont and suddenly there was a huge bang a big cloud of smoke and it smelled like gunpowder, but no debris or anything. All seemed very strange.
