Three maintenance workers have been seriously injured in a fire at the US State Department headquarter in Washington.

One person suffered life-threatening injuries and two others had serious burns after they tried to put out the fire on the seventh floor before the arrival of the fire crew.

All three are being treated at Washington Hospital Center.

The building has now reopened after a brief evacuation.
