Fire overnight at building that houses DWD, Children and Families department

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A state office building will be closed all day, while crews clean up and investigate an overnight fire.  

It happened at the General Executive Facility on East Washington Avenue in Madison, close to the Capitol.  

Fire officials said a passer-by heard the building's alarm system sounding around 1:50 a.m. Friday. Crews later found ceiling tiles that were melted on the building's fourth floor.  

No injuries were reported.  

Media reports said smoke spread to most floors of the structure, which houses the headquarters of the state departments of Workforce Development and Children and Families.  

All other state office buildings remain open.
