Harvey Weinstein's film company office in New York City was evacuated on Monday (16Jun14) after a fire broke out in the building. Emergency services were called to The Weinstein Company's office in Manhattan to tackle a blaze, which prompted an evacuation of workers, including Weinstein's brother Bob, who co-runs the business. A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "The Weinstein Company's offices were evacuated at 99 Hudson because of a fire. They're all on the street, including Bob Weinstein." A representative for the Official Fire Department City of New York (FDNY) adds, "(The fire was) extinguished, largely by the building's sprinkler system... (There was) minor flooding in the basement."
