MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Police briefly evacuated the Wisconsin state Capitol building after a state senator’s light bulb began to smoke.

Fire alarms began ringing throughout the building around 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday. Police ordered everyone out.

A spokeswoman for the state Department of Administration said a light bulb in state Sen. Dale Schultz’s office popped and began to smoke. She says it didn’t catch fire, though, and authorities re-opened the Capitol shortly before 11 a.m.
