LOS ANGELES, Ca. - With temperatures nearing 100 degrees in downtown Los Angeles, fans in the bleachers outside the Emmy Awards are resorting to fans - both paper and electric - to keep cool.

The hundreds of people in bleachers on the red carpet on Sunday are in good spirits as staffers pass out water every few minutes to try to keep everyone hydrated. The water isn't chilled and there is no ice, so many fans keep asking for ice to no avail.

The bleachers are covered and a gentle breeze is blowing, offering some relief.

Georgia schoolteacher Kim Lane has been to the Emmys bleachers for at least eight award shows and remembers one other year it was 100 degrees.

Lane says, "Even being from the South, this is hot."
