BATON ROUGE - Firefighters evacuated the Capitol Annex in Baton Rouge this morning after smoke was reported inside.

Curt Monte with the Baton Rouge Fire Department said the smoke came from a fan motor which overheated in a maintenance room, which did not cause any damage to the building.

He said once the smoke was cleared everyone was allowed back in, and workers installed a new fan motor.

The Capitol Annex contains Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne's office and other state offices.
