News: Fire at WFMJ-TV/WBCB-TV Wednesdsay Morning in Youngstown
A fire struck at our NBC sister station, WFMJ-TV (and CW Affiliate WBCB-TV), in Youngstown at 4:15 Wednesday morning, nixing normal broadcasting for the morning show. It's unclear the extent of the damage or the length of the partial service.
The fire was contained to a basement storage room, but smoke damage was extensive. WFMJ's morning show this morning was produced outside building with live news anchor standup presentation, but it was just brief broadcasts.
As of their 6 pm broadcast tonight, the cause of the fire had not been determined. WFMJ reports the cleanup continues on their equipment used directly in their newscast and programming production.
