CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

The Chicago Children's Museum was closed for a short time following a fire in an elevator at Navy Pier early Thursday afternoon.

A still and box alarm was called just after 12:30 p.m. when a small fire in an elevator caused light smoke in the area, according to Fire Media Affairs.

No evacuations of Navy Pier were required, but Fire Media said the patrons of the Children's Museum conducted an orderly voluntary departure, and that facility was temporarily closed to allow ventilation of smoke.

The museum had reopened by 1:30 p.m., Navy Pier spokesman Nick Shields said.

The fire was out by 12:55 p.m. and smoke quickly started dissipating, according to Fire Media.

No injuries were reported.
