The alarm was raised after smoke was reported at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court in Chapel Street at around 12.50pm on Wednesday August 24.
Crews found no signs of fire upon arrival but found “a small amount of smoke in the attic caused by a broken fan”.
A Department of Justice spokesperson added: ‘Emergency services responded…as a precaution following a power outage.
“There was no fire and the procedure resumed within half an hour.”
Firefighters used a thermal camera and responded for about 40 minutes.

There is no fire but I smell burning, what should I do?
If you smell something burning, especially if you don’t know what’s causing it, it’s essential to dial 999 immediately.
