The Pacific Southwest Building on Fulton Street in downtown Fresno was evacuated Tuesday afternoon when a smoke detector activated in the 16-floor building.
Sevak Khatchadourian, the building owner, said a smoke detector went off on the seventh floor, prompting a brief evacuation of tenants.
“It was very brief, a 10-minute thing, and everybody is back in now,” he said.
The building is home to several floors of residential lofts, offices, the Workspace office-sharing collaborative, the technology department for the Fresno County Office of Education, law offices and other business tenants.
