WASHINGTON -- A fire at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center temporarily closed the building this morning.
The building has been reopened, according to the General Services Administration.
No one has been hurt. The building had been evacuated and closed for a few hours. Sister-station WTOP is reporting only cleaning crews were allowed back into the building.
A grease fire broke out in a restaurant in the food court of the building near Freedom Plaza, according to D.C. Fire & EMS. The fire has been put out, but some flames got into the duct work.
The Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and Cisco Systems are among some of the tenants of the building.
Check out the WTOP Traffic Center for complete information.
