HVAC equipment on top of the Franklin Tower Buildings at 14th and I St NW caught fire this morning, producing large amounts of black smoke this morning around 10:30.  Fire Department spokesman Pete Piringer says that they have gotten the fire knocked down and under control this morning, but the building had to be evacuated as a precaution.
