WASHINGTON (AP) - D.C. Superior Court’s main courthouse is closed for the day after a small fire.

A court spokeswoman says the fire broke out in the Moultrie Courthouse on Indiana Avenue northwest on Tuesday morning and the building was evacuated. She says because of smoke in the building and water damage, proceedings set to be held in the building are postponed until Wednesday. Jurors involved in cases being heard in the main courthouse should not report.

Cases being heard in other buildings will proceed as scheduled Tuesday and officials expect to resume full operations in the main courthouse on Wednesday.
