WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Firefighters battled thick smoke and flames inside the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on Wednesday.




Smoke can be seen coming from a window at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on Wednesday.


The Eisenhower Executive Office Building is across the street from the West Wing of the White House. It houses a majority of offices for White House staff.


Smoke could be seen from the White House driveway.


Video showed firefighters breaking a window and spraying flames with a hose.

This is about a block away from the White House.

Fire is contained now. There was a malfunction of an electrical closet that is adjacent to the current President's office. You can always expect a media circus when something happens in DC.


Perhaps this will bring more attention to this building. I saw it myself about half a year ago (never had heard about it) and its a very beautiful building that somehow looks out of place in DC. Design looks very European.
