UNIVERSAL CITY (KABC) -- A fire has been reported on a backlot at Universal City. The flames are now contained to that lot.

 

The blaze erupted just before 5 a.m. Sunday. Three firefighters were injured--one confirmed as a result of smoke inhalation.

 

There have been various reports as to the cause of the blaze, but currently, nothing has been confirmed. According to early reports, however, the event began as a result of a film shoot on the lot.  Fire inspector Darryl Jacobs said that firefighters did encounter some explosions from flammable materials such as propane tanks upon their arrival.

...

According to firefighters, the following structures have been damaged and/or destroyed:

# New York Street

# Courthouse Square

# King Kong structure

# Universal's video vault (which is still burning)

 

The King Kong structure reportedly caught fire from the roof and compromised several of the surrounding structures.

 

It's a tragedy in some ways. The Courthouse square(as seen in Back to the Future) was priceless in my mind. The King Kong part needed to go, so they could rebuild it.

My girlfriend and I were there just a couple months ago. I even have the pictures sitting around. Hopefully it isn't all destroyed.

Ron Meyer, President and Chief Operating Officer at Universal Studios, said that the main vault containing film masters was not damaged.

Thank GOD not the Masters smile.gif

... wow. Imagine losing all the masters of Saturday Night Live. So much could be lost - you'd think that after something like this has happened before that they'd build a fireproof vault! sad.gif

 

Edit - apparently it was all just film dupes, and nothing irreplaceable. That's the official word.

Thats what I thought, sad.gif

 

Hopefully, in this day and age there will be copies of most of the archives.

 

NinjaEDIT: Ah, just saw Otter's post. blush.gif Good news. It would be a shame to lose a studio's history in such a way.

I was getting tired of "New York Street" after seeing the same couple of buildings from every conceivable angle during the outdoor scenes of Seinfeld. Hopefully they'll build something cool and different to replace it.

Universal Studios is pretty much ruined for me. First they got rid of E.T. the ride a few years ago. Then just last year they got rid of Back to the Future the Ride. Without Courthouse Square, there is little to justify forking over $50 for a ticket.

Yeah, but in Hollywood, it was the actual set, although it was dressed for the TV show Ghost Whisperer, so they might actually have part of the original set in storage somewhere. That's what is (or was) awesome about the studio. It is an actual studio, and if you are lucky you can catch a TV show or movie filming, while you are on the tour. Hell, about a year and a half ago my brother was on the tour, and as the tram drove past a blocked off street on the New York set, he saw a big rig truck painted in red and blue, and a tank shaped object covered with a tarp. Transformers?

 

Do they even film things in Florida?
