HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The state capitol building in Hartford was briefly evacuated after a fire alarm went off on Thursday morning.

Officials could not say the reason the alarm was activated; however, they said there was no danger.

Capt. Raul Ortiz of the Hartford Fire Department called it "just a lot of bells and whistles."

Republican Rob Kane, GOP auditor of public accounts and former state senator, said the all clear was given and everyone was back to work around 9:15 a.m.
