I just heard it on Channel 7 in Washington, DC. Apparently smoke from a nearby construction site.

I the ATCSCC issued a ZDC1 GS during that timeframe. I thought they had moved to the new ATCT already? I guess not. Article says there were 4 people taken to the hospital? You gotta be kidding me...

According to the Washington Post (link below) the fumes caused the tower to close at 10:00AM. Three controllers and a supervisor went to a hospital. The other controllers went to the ground operations tower, where they stayed until about 1:00PM. There were delays up to 30 minutes for arriving and departing flights from 10:00AM to 1:00PM.
