BATON ROUGE - Authorities evacuated the Claiborne building in downtown Baton Rouge after an alarm Thursday morning.

Police say the alarm was set off accidentally by someone cleaning in the building.

Fire trucks and police responded after the alarm prompted state workers to evacuate the building, which houses several governmental agencies.

Two weeks ago a similar alarm prompted the evacuation of the nearby Capitol Annex. Firefighters said a fan motor burned out in the building's maintenance room and blew smoke throughout the building, but caused no damage.
