Fire on the Set

This from an e-mailer about an incident during KATV's Sunday evening newscast: "I dont know if u have heard about this or not but on Sunday during the five o'clock news while Todd was doing the weather, a key light shorted out at the chroma key wall causing a minor fire. What was funny was that Todd just kept on going while no more than three feet away from him, the plug is shooting sparks out of it and melting itself to the wall. You could actually hear the light shorting out even while Todd was sitting at the desk talking to Pam.

Wasn't there another fire at that station not too long ago?

I rarely watch 7 but was watching that Sunday afternoon. While I'm no big fan of that station (still mad about the World Cup, and awaiting them saying they aren't going to air the MLS Cup AGAIN this year), I was impressed by how the weather guy handled it.

I only watch 7 on the weekend when Pam Smith is off. I am suprised she has not filed suit for unsafe working conditions.
