Emergency Trucks Respond to White House Incident

Jan 25, 2009 1:00pm

ABC News’ John Hendren reports:

There is an emergency situation, possibly a fire, at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, next to the White House.

An ABC News crew a short time ago saw rescue and pump trucks nearby and a hook and ladder truck outside Blair House, which is also next to the White House.

Our crew says things appears to be under control. ABC’s crew at the White House is still trying to locate the incident.

No early guidance as to what is going on from the White House press operation.

Update # 1

A producer for another network says DC fire officials told her someone lit a fire in a fireplace and became concerned about the smoke.
