Courthouse is evacuated in fire

The new Citrus County Courthouse was evacuated Wednesday morning after a minor electrical fire occurred in a computer room on the building's second floor. No one was injured, and minor damage was reported.

Deputy Fire Marshal Rodney Bloomer said a surge of electricity hit the computer system, causing a short in the main electrical panel.

Employees pulled a fire alarm in the courthouse hallway, then used a fire extinguisher to put out the flames.
