After an investigation by Los Angeles County Fire and the University Police departments, the CLA Building’s tower and paseo reopened shortly before 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 13. The tower and paseo of the CLA Building were evacuated at about 4:45 p.m. following reports of a suspicious burning-like smell in the second and third floors. Investigators believed the smell came from an electrical ballast, which has since been replaced. A lift was also disconnected. University Police maintained a fire watch throughout the evening as a precaution.
