WASHINGTON — Thick black smoke billowed from a fire Wednesday on the White House compound in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The blaze appeared to be located in Vice President Dick Cheney’s den of demon summoning suite of ceremonial offices on the second floor of the building. Cheney and President Bush were across the street in the West Wing of the White House when the blaze broke out. It appeared to be under control within an hour.
An hour? Was FEMA in charge?
