Fire hits WABC-TV

WABC-TV in New York was knocked off the air for a time last night after a fire broke out at the station before the 11 p.m. newscast and didn’t resume until 5 a.m. The station’s early-morning newscasts were broadcast from what looked like a cramped office.

The station’s newsroom and some equipment were damaged by fire, smoke and water damage.

Here is a report from WNBC on the story.
