Smoke scare forces evacuation of county office building in Santa Rosa

The smell of smoke caused a brief evacuation of the Sonoma County Permit and Resource Management Department office in Santa Rosa Wednesday morning, but there was no fire.

Firefighters on the scene said the odor, first reported around 9:30 a.m., probably came from a malfunctioning light fixture and employees were allowed back inside within minutes.
