The Troup County Government Center was briefly evacuated Thursday morning after an elevator motor blew out and set off smoke alarms.

Officials say the building was efficiently evacuated, while fire department and maintenance personnel handled the issue with only minor interruption of courthouse activities.

By around 9 a.m. the issue had been handled, and people were being allowed back into the government center.
