It's all over the news. Sad, but at least no major injuries. Things can be rebuilt. The videos and tapes that were destroyed can be replaced as they have copies stored elsewhere.

Not the first major fire there though, perhaps they need upgraded fire protection/sprinklers systems, even on movie sets.

I have a crazy idea that in the next year, we might see a disaster movie based around this.

Not even the first major fire to hit the monkey show!
