FREDRICKA WHITFIELD, CNN ANCHOR: That's right. Sorry to interrupt you, but we've got two stories we're following for you. One on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., where a fire has been reported there on Capitol Hill, possibly in the Capitol building and possibly on a fourth floor.

Fire officials have been dispatched to that area, and you can see evacuations have already been taking place. Capitol Hill, particularly the Capitol building, often a magnet for a lot of tours, and it appears from the pictures that you're seeing right now that a lot of the young people who are being evacuated may have been involved in some of the tours on the hill there.

The second story we are following for you, and a breaking story that we are following for you right now, is out in Escondido, California.

You are looking at a rescue as it is happening at the Family Fun Center, which is today anything but. On this Ferris wheel, apparently something went wrong and now officials are trying to rescue people from that Ferris wheel.

Three injured people, reportedly, so far, some of whom are children. And of course, when we get more information on that rescue and a little bit more detail on the injuries and exactly what took place before this rescue attempt, we'll be bringing that to you. That taking place in Escondido, California.

We want to take it back to TALKBACK LIVE now and Arthel Neville.
