The Humboldt County Courthouse was evacuated this afternoon when smoke and haze filled the basement. A courthouse employee told Journal freelancer Linda Stansberry that the Sheriff's Office smelled smoke and pulled the fire alarm around 1:15 p.m. 

The courthouse was evacuated less than a month ago when an elevator shaft filled with smoke.
