Lights out at the Commerce Department

By Ed O'Keefe

Updated 11:18 a.m. ET
The lights went out this morning in parts of the Commerce Department's massive headquarters building in Washington, according to a spokeswoman.

Electricians conducted repairs to the impacted areas where about 300 employees work, the spokeswoman said.

The building, named for former president Herbert Hoover, is no stranger to structural problems. A third-floor fire last month closed the building for a day. It's undergoing a years-long renovation requiring workers to relocate to temporary swing space in the basement -- a move that's literally caused bad headaches for some.
