TMZ got hold of the 911 call when the fire Universal Studios was reported. It's amazing how calm everything sounds.

It's interesting to note that Universal Studios is never mentioned in this call, only Universal City, which is often incorrectly thought of as Universal Studios and the neighborhood of Cahuenga Pass (it's only a general area). The reason she asks for the address first is that she can easily dispatch fire engines to the scene as the phone conversation continues.
