1200 EVACUATED AFTER SYDNEY'S CBD BUILDING FIRE

Around 1200 people were evacuated at an office building in Sydney's CBD after a fire broke out in a restaurant kitchen.

The area around World Square is engulfed with smoke from the blaze, which firefighters believe may have started in an oven in a pizza shop on the ground floor.

An air conditioning duct then sent smoke throughout the entire building.

About 60 firefighters from eight surrounding stations were on the scene at 338 Pitt St.
