Precautionary Building Ventilation Shut Down in Capitol Complex

Due to a fire near 17th and Grant, the Department of Personnel & Administration's Capitol Complex property management has, as a precaution, shut down all ventilation as of 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, in the following buildings:

  • 1570 Grant (Health Care Policy and Finance)
  • Human Services Building (Colorado Department of Human Services)
  • State Services Building (Department of Personnel & Administration)
  • State Office Building (Colorado Department of Education)

The ventilation shut down should help mitigate the smell of smoke in the buildings, but will not eliminate it completely.

There is no immediate danger to any Capitol Complex buildings.

Building ventilation will be restored when Denver Fire Department has the situation under control.
