A fire on a green wall at the Sydney CBD building where the prime minister is scheduled to meet with electricity company bosses has been extinguished.
Smoke could be seen billowing from the five-metre vertical wall at the Bligh Street building just before 10am on Wednesday, a Fire & Rescue spokeswoman told AAP.
Three fire crews spent 20 minutes bringing the blaze under control using foam to put it out, she said.
Police closed Bligh Street as crews arrived.
