— More than 1,100 people got out of the state government complex's Albemarle Building in downtown Raleigh Tuesday morning after smelling smoke, according to Raleigh Fire Marshal Rusty Styons.

An air circulator motor broke and caused the smoke smell to be pumped through a couple of floors, he said. No other information was released.
