WASHINGTON (AP) - IRS headquarters in Washington will remain closed for the rest of the week while repairs are made after a basement fire in the building.

The agency said in a news release Tuesday that Monday afternoon’s fire affected the air handling system. No one was hurt in the fire.

The IRS says telework-ready employees are expected to telework from their approved location.

Officials say tax returns are not processed at headquarters; taxpayers should continue to file their returns.
