2UE was forced to evacuate their studios just before 3.00pm this afternoon due to a fire in the building that houses the radio station. Weekend breakfast presenter Don Burke, currently filling in for Tim Webster on the afternoon program, announced that "smoke was billowing" through the building and they would be going to music until further notice. It forced the station to drop their 3.00pm news replaced by the old perennial in times of crisis, Macarthur Park all 7 plus minutes of it. Drive presenter John Stanley returned the station to air just after 3.10pm.
