DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Weeks after burned macaroni and cheese emptied out the Iowa Capitol, a charred pizza crust has done it again.

The crust burned Tuesday morning in the Capitol cafeteria, prompting a brief evacuation.

Department of Administrative Services Spokesman Caleb Hunter says property was not damaged and no one was injured.

The Iowa Legislature is still in session, but many members were not at the Capitol on Tuesday.

About three weeks ago, the Capitol was evacuated when someone burned a macaroni and cheese lunch in a microwave behind the Senate chambers.
