— The visitors center at the Wright Brothers National Memorial will be closed for several days following a Wednesday fire, officials said.

The building was evacuated during the morning fire in the ventilation and cooling system, officials said. No injuries were reported.

Crews will have to clean up the visitors center and repair the damage before it can be reopened, officials said.

The rest of the memorial park remains open.
