Iowa capitol building evacuated for burned mac and cheese
The odor of something burning forced the evacuation of the state capitol building in Des Moines, Iowa, but the source was not fire.
It was burned “Easy Mac” in a microwave near the Senate chamber.
Alarms sounded just after 11 a.m., and lawmakers, state workers and visitors were evacuated from the capitol building. Firefighters, with sirens blaring, responded to the alarm.
A short time later, the overcooked dish was found in the microwave. The evacuation was lifted and everyone returned to the building.
