Fire Shutters GSA Regional Building in Downtown DC

A U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) building in downtown D.C. is closed Monday after an early-morning fire.

D.C. Fire and EMS crews were called for a fire on the sixth floor of the 10-story GSA Regional Office Building at 301 7th St. SW. It wasn't immediately known what time they were called.

Sprinklers inside the building went off and contained the fire, officials said. "Once again Sprinklers proved effectiveness in containing a potentially major fire in a key facility. Sprinklers save lives and property," D.C. Fire and EMS tweeted about 6:30 a.m.

There were no reports of injuries.

Fire investigators determined that the fire originated from a light fixture, said a GSA official.

Employees were told they could work at the GSA's central office building at 1800 F St. NW or work remotely Monday, according to the official.
