Flash fire injures four in State Department building during construction repairs

Washington (CNN) – A flash fire in the ductwork of the State Department injured four people Saturday, including three who were sent to a hospital, fire officials said.

One person was in a "life-threatening condition" and the other two people were in serious but non-life threatening condition at Washington Hospital Center, authorities said.

    Terrible. I hope that all of those injured in this fire fully recover.
    Still . . seems a bit odd that there was a "flash fire" – was this an area of the State Department that had information about Benghazi? Funny how the far right is targeting the UN Ambassador, even though the secretary of state is the head of the state dept. Interesting how they are not going after Hillary.

    Quick – let's have a full scale Executive Dept investigation to determine where McCain was and what he was going when he was there.

    I wonder how long before the GOP start to demand that an investigation into this situation.They will also need to tie this event into how your re-elected President and his administration are responsible for this. To the families of those injured I WILL PRAY FOR YOU ALL
