Leno’s Take on CNN Yellin’s Fiery On-Air Moment

During his Wednesday night monologue, NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno had some fun with D.C.-based CNN correspondent Jessica Yellin , who had an unusual on-air encounter. Yellin had a fire alarm blaring in the background of a recent segment. Yellin, as always, handled the moment with ease, laughed, and explained that the alarm was a drill and not a real fire.

Leno, meanwhile, had a cartoon character on fire running behind Yellin’s head.
