A fire broke out early Saturday at the Oregon Capitol, leaving the building with damage from smoke, water and fire, including to the governor’s ceremonial office and the offices of some of his high-ranking staff members.
The fire was put out in about 20 minutes, said Capt. Calvin Curths of Oregon State Police. Five janitors were working inside the building and exited safely after being alerted by a fire alarm.
