— North Carolina State University’s McKimmon Center was closed Tuesday after an electrical fire.

The fire started in a closet just after 8 a.m., university officials said.

Meetings and classes planned for inside the center were relocated to other buildings on campus. A large meeting, which involved 250 people, was postponed.

Crews planned to clean the center overnight so it can be reopened on Wednesday.
