Building home to DWD, Children and Families closed for at least 8 weeks

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The state office building which houses the Departments of Workforce Development and Children and Families will be shut down for at least eight weeks.  

That's after a smoky fire last Friday at the General Executive Facility about a block from the State Capitol on East Washington Avenue in Madison.

Officials say an inspection continues into the building's mechanical and structural systems -- and there's still cleanup work to do.  

Madison fire investigators said the blaze was caused by an electrical problem. It's been ruled an accident.  

About 1,000 people normally work in the facility. They're now working from their homes or other locations. Online services by both affected agencies are working as normal.
