A fire is raging at Universal with over 100 (other reports say 200) firefighters battling the blaze that started around 5am this morning on a soundstage. You can watch streaming video at MyFOX Live. King Kong is reported lost as is the film vault. No reports of human injuries so far.
Universal City Walk and Universal Studios tour/attractions are still going to be open today.

There are over 400 firefighters working on this fire now. There have been a few minor injuries to the firefighters, nothing serious. The fire started on New York street and that has burned down as has Courthouse Square, where, if I’m not mistaken, they shot Back To The Future — Clocktower, lightning bolt, etc. King Kong is no more and now the biggest fire is in a tape vault building and that will take about another hour to put out.
