CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- An overheated exhaust fan caused a lot of problems in downtown Charleston.

Firefighters tell, the fan started smoking inside the Atmosphere Lounge on Lee Street just after 10:00 a.m. Thursday.

The smoke filled a neighboring pizza shop and hair salon.

The building was evacuated and part of the Lee Street was closed.

Once firefighters figured out the problem, they aired out the building and everyone was allowed back in.
