Cause Of Fire Near White House Unknown

It still isn't clear how much damage was caused by this morning's fire at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next to the White House.
   It appears the smoke came from an electrical closet on the building's second floor.
   A White House spokesman says Vice President Cheney's office was damaged by smoke and water from fire hoses.
   The vice president was not in the building at the time, and was instead in the West Wing of the White House with President Bush.
   More than 1,000 people who work in the building were evacuated.
Fire officials say the blaze was under control within a half hour.
   Afterward, Bush and Cheney appeared between the White House and the damaged building to thank District of Columbia firefighters.
