BALTIMORE - Emergency officials say more than a dozen people were treated after employees at a north Baltimore office building reported becoming ill.

It happened about 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Johns Hopkins at Keswick administrative complex, which has more than 1,000 employees. The Mayor's Office of Emergency Management says several people reported to Fire Department medics that they felt ill. One of the two buildings at the complex was evacuated.

Officials say hazmat crews checked the building for irritants, but no readings were reported.

Seventeen people were treated.
