The Howlett Building downtown will be closed today because of a small fire.
A message posted to CyberDriveIllinois.gov says the building is closed Tuesday because of mechanical issues caused by a small fire.
Henry Haupt with the Secretary of State’s office says Springfield’s Fire Department responded to the fire shortly after 1am Tuesday morning and the damage was minimal. Haupt also says there is no air conditioning, but no further information was available.
Normal hours and work schedules are expected to resume Wednesday.
