      Fire burns on White House grounds
      2 minutes ago

      WASHINGTON - Thick black smoke billowed from a fire
      Wednesday on the White House compound in the Executive
      Office Building.

      The blaze appeared to be located near the ceremonial
      office of Vice President Dick Cheney on the second
      floor of the building. The vice president was across
      the street in his office in the West Wing of the White
      House.

      Secret Service spokesman Darrin Blackford said the Old
      Executive Office building was evacuated as a
      precaution. District of Columbia firefighters poured
      water on the blaze and moved furniture from the
      building onto a balcony.

      The Executive Office Building houses the Office of
      Management and Budget and staff of the National
      Security Council and other agencies.
