BALTIMORE (AP) - Three weeks after a smoky fire on the day of the primary election, the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse in Baltimore is set to reopen.

Court officials said in an email that the Baltimore Department of General Services allowed staff into the building Tuesday, and court functions, including trials, will resume at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The electrical fire broke out in the basement of the building, which takes up an entire city block, on April 26. No one was hurt.
