MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - A hazardous materials’ team was called to Milwaukee’s Federal Courthouse Monday afternoon, after an employee smelled something foul on the building’s fourth floor.

The Milwaukee Fire Department was called around 2:30 p.m.

Deputy Chief Michael Romas said the odor came from a crack in a group of eight batteries used as back-up power for the building’s telephone system.

No one got sick or hurt from the odor. Only the people on the fourth floor were evacuated.

Motorists around the downtown courthouse were inconvenienced. The city’s main street – Wisconsin Avenue – was blocked off for over an hour while the incident was being investigated
