The NCAA is keeping its headquarters and Hall of Champions closed for another day as it continues to clean up from a fire in the museum.

NCAA spokesman Erik Christianson says the organization hopes to reopen the headquarters on Friday. However, the museum will remain closed indefinitely for repairs.

The fire started in a second-floor area containing some interactive exhibits and was contained by a sprinkler system. Water drenched some exhibits.

The museum shares a ventilation system with the headquarters and some smoke got into the system. Christianson says the smoke didn't reach the headquarters building, but another day is needed to clean the system.

An electrical problem is believed to have caused the fire.
