Legislative Hall evacuated briefly

Legislative Hall was evacuated for about half an hour Wednesday morning. Two fire trucks arrived at the scene while dozens of people in the building at the time waited out on Legislative Mall. The cause of the incident was a small 102 volt transformer, which overheated and began smoking, setting off a fire alarm.
