News4 is working to learn more about the fire. However, labor officials said they still planned to hold their scheduled news media briefings in the building Friday to discuss findings of the Employment Situation Report.

Employees who work at the Frances Perkins Building located at 200 Constitution Avenue NW will be on administrative leave Friday.

Emergency employees are expected to report to their worksites unless otherwise directed.

Department of Labor employees should check with their supervisor or DOL.gov for updates.
