D.C. fire officials say three people were seriously injured after a fire broke out at the State Department headquarters in Washington, D.C.
A spokesperson says the fire broke out late Saturday morning in the ductwork on the 7th floor as crews were working on the building. Workers were able to put the fire out before firefighters arrived, but not before three people suffered burns.
One person suffered life-threatening injuries and two others had serious but non-life-threatening injuries. All three were taken to Washington Hospital Center.
There were only a handful of federal employees in the building at the time of the blaze because of the holiday weekend.
