MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Hundreds of people ran out of the Milwaukee County Courthouse this morning, after a painter accidentally set off a fire alarm.

The courthouse had just fully re-opened Wednesday, after an electrical fire on July sixth closed the building.

A spokesman for County Executive Chris Abele mentioned a silver lining in today’s false alarm.  Brendan Conway said it showed that the building’s evacuation procedures are working smoothly.

Crews are still replacing ceiling tiles and carpeting which had smoke damage from the fire.

Most employees are back in their offices by now.

The cause of the electrical fire remains under investigation.
