11:01 am
d.c. school president peggy cooper. the home was filled with her extensive collection of paintings and other pieces. when firefighters got the call at about 8:15 last night, the flames were so widespread they had to call for backup. eventually 100 firefighters were on the scene. but they ran into problems trying to put the fire out. >> it was about two hours before we had a sustained continuous adequate water flow. >> reporter: firefighters are still pumping water blocks away from the scene just to put out hot spots. neighbors reported low water pressure in the area in recent weeks. fire officials say they weren't aware of the problem when they arrived. it's unclear if that information would have helped firefighters save the home. >> this fire was already in advanced stages when we got there. so, it was a real fight from the beginning. and then it's complicated by the fact that we appeared to
11:02 am
have inadequate pressure. that puts us behind the eight ball. >> reporter: john lives a few doors down from the home. he says low water pressure has been a problem for years. >> what i had to do was put on a booster pump. so, i think this is a problem that was ongoing. i spoke to one of the firemen and he was telling me that the water mains just weren't big enough. plus, this is the highest point in the city. >> reporter: now, just two years ago low water pressure was an issue during the georgetown library fire. they are in the middle of a $26 million overhaul of the system but at this point we are trying to hear from them this morning to explain what the problem was on this road. sarah simmons, fox 5 news, back to you. >> thank you. >> the home and the artwork was once featured in oprah winfrey's magazine o. she said she had a lot of art done by people of color. we were so absent from the major art scene for so long,

11:04 am
where do we stand now? >> reporter: they got blue dog democrats on board, some of them in the house -- [ inaudible ] running into from the house democrats perspective is that they are losing some more liberal democrats upset about the concessions that were made to bring the conservative democrats on board. this is a fight going on within the house as the senate goes about their business to get their own plan passed. the fact that they did get some of those conservatives on board with a scaled down proposal is significant. they will still falwell short of meeting president obama's august 7th deadline to get a house to pass a version and senate. they won't even approach a vote like that until probably september. and that means that all the members of congress are going to go back to their home district during the summer recess and get an earful about the pros and counts of the overall. >> how much does it hurt the president with his former physician coming out saying
11:05 am
what he had to say? >> reporter: i'm not sure that plays that big of a role. there are plenty of people on the fringes expressing opinions one way or the other. the real trick is to get members of congress on board and particularly in the senate that will be tough to override a filibuster. there is a lot of arm twisting going on in a lot of different corners of the capitol to get p they have to unify the various plans into one single one that the president will sign and that may take a while. >> we understand that nancy pelosi i speaking on the topic right now as we speak? >> i think she is doing her weekly update. that is probably going to be -- going to largely focus on the health care reform effort, yeah. >> very good. thank you, doug, appreciate it. >> thanks, holly. >> and the president has invited cambridge police sergeant james crowley and henry louis gates to the white house for a beer today.
