Huge fire burns movie sets at Universal Studios

"A fire at Universal Studios on Sunday destroyed a set from 'Back to the Future,' the King Kong exhibit and a video vault containing more than 40,000 videos and reels."

"NBC Universal President and Chief Operating Officer Ron Meyer says 40,000 to 50,000 videos and reels were damaged in the video vault, but there are duplicates in a different location."

Universal Studios is located in Universal City, north of Los Angeles.

  1. "Luckily, all our proprietary content is safely copied on YouTube."

    ... just kidding ;)

  2. lol......now that was classic Q!

  3. OH man, I'm going to miss the King Kong exhibit.

  4. Early reports say the fire was caused when a bolt of lightning struck the 'Back to the Future' clock tower. No word on whether a Delorean was seen in the area.

  5. they say the fire started around 4:35am... that's awfully close to 4:36

    I'm just sayin'.


  6. What the Smoke Monster from LOST does during the off-season... attacks the other networks.

  7. Perfect example of why I always tell clients at my job to have a safety master vaulted in another location. Preferably out of state.
