INDIO, Calif, -

Cal Fire responded today to a report of smoke at the Larson Justice Center. 

Cal Fire says a mechanical sprinkler failure activated the alarm system. The first engine to arrive reported smoke showing from the exterior of the building. Upon further investigation it was found that a small electrical fire activated the sprinkler system in multiple parts of the building. However, the fire was contained to one area, causing a small amount of smoke.

Most of those who were evacuated say they did not see or smell smoke.
