Fire at Federal Commerce Department requires Hazmat team

Posted:

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -- A Hazmat fire at the Commerce Department in Washington D.C. kept firefighters busy Thursday night.

The small fire apparently started on the third floor of the building and was knocked down quickly.

But the building had to be evacuated because the fire started in a storage room where construction workers were removing asbestos.

A decontamination area was set up on the street for firefighters.

No injuries were reported.
