A freelance crew setting up lights in the Pepsi Center skybox used by Fox affiliate service Fox News Edge got a little too close to the sprinkler system last night. A tipster writes, “They set up their lights against a sprinkler head (against instructions). There is now a major flood in their booth!”
Fox News insiders tell us it wasn’t quite a ‘major flood’ and that whatever damage was done has been cleaned up and the box is ready for use for live shots for affiliates and FNC correspondents, should they need the space.
As for the damage, the insider says a laptop computer is out of commission but that no other production equipment was damaged.
