WASHINGTON (AP) — A building in the U.S. Capitol complex has been cleared after several workers reported feeling ill.

The Longworth Building, one of three main office buildings for the House, is being renovated.

Lead exposure could be responsible, according to the House Sergeant at Arms office.

Ten people are being evaluated. The incident happened on a typically empty Friday on Capitol Hill.
