The Philadelphia Fire Department says there was a minor electrical fire in the basement of Independence Hall, and it's been extinguished.

A receptionist at the national historic site says Saturday afternoon that it was open as usual, with no disruptions.

Independence Hall dates to 1753, and is where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were adopted.
