SAN DIEGO – A fire alarm at the San Diego County Administration Building forced workers to evacuate and interrupted a Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday.

The alarm sounded around 10 a.m. moments before supervisors addressed the freedom of speech permits. Firefighters were called into the building, but there was no report of smoke or fire inside the building, San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman Lee Swanson said.

It was initially reported that a fire was in the stairwell, but it was unfounded.

The Board of Supervisors meeting resumed by 11 a.m.

Workers were evacuated from the SD County Administration Building after a fire alarm sounded.
