Natural History Museum open as usual after fire

By Lavanya Ramanathan

After a fire this morning at the National Museum of Natural History sent an ominous stream of smoke into the morning sky, the museum is open today, just a few minutes later than usual, a spokeswoman for the museum said. No sections of the museum will be closed as a result of the fire.

Check out photos of this morning's smoke on the Mall on the Post Local blog.
