WASHINGTON, DC. (THECOUNT) — A fire Sunday morning in Northwest Washington, D.C., damaged studios for Fox News, forcing “Fox News Sunday” to relocate its broadcast to a local affiliate’s studio, thehill is reporting.
“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace addressed the fire to kick off his popular Sunday’s program saying the fire forced him and his crew to abruptly move to another location for broadcast.
“If things look a little bit different here today that’s because of the fact that we had a fire — yes, a fire — in our building on North Capitol Street, and so we’re over at our wonderful affiliate WTTG,” Wallace said.
The fire also shuttered C-SPAN and MSNBC, who all share the same address.
D.C. Fire and EMS tweeted that an electrical fire broke out in the 8th floor television studio but nobody was injured.
Steve Scully, the political editor for C-SPAN, tweeted shortly after 7 a.m. that the Fox News and C-SPAN studios sustained “extensive damage,” and MSNBC’s studio took on “extensive smoke and water damage.” Continue reading

Clearly he won on the money part.” Lemon joins his fellow CNN host Anderson Cooper, who began modeling at age 10for Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Macy’s, but stopped a few years later after he said he was “propositioned by a photographer.” On Wednesday, Bill O’Reilly revealed that he had been approached by a modeling agency during his early career to be the “Marlboro man” for the famous cigarette campaign. h/t huffpo
