Firefighters responded to INL's Engineering Research Office Building at the Idaho National Laboratory on Aug. 27.


The Engineering Research Office Building of the Idaho National Laboratory was evacuated briefly Tuesday morning.

A motor in the elevator control room caught fire. An INL maintenance worker put it out with a fire extinguisher before the fire department arrived, said Idaho Falls Division Chief Brad Pettingill.

About 660 people work in the building, an INL spokesperson said.
