The reason for the evacuation was not immediately clear. Fox News reported that officials believe a construction worker accidentally set off an alarm. 

Streets nearby were closed as a result of the evacuation.

Rep. Nancy Mace, South Carolina Republican, posted a video of herself leaving the Cannon building.

“We’re being evacuated,” she said on Twitter as a shrill alarm sounded repeatedly. “We’re not really sure what’s going on — some kind of threat.”
