Just after midnight, the department tweeted that an unknown substance had leaked in a fifth-floor building. Firefighters did not say which building the spill was in or how it happened.

The substance was later identified as ethanol. The affected area was isolated with the help of University of Washington police officers.

No injuries were reported.
