LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A large fire is burning on a lot at Universal Studios, site of television and movie production, the Los Angeles city fire department said.
There were no immediate reports of injuries but scores of firefighters and helicopters were battling the blaze.
Los Angeles County fire Inspector Daryl Jacobs said at least one building had burned and as many as three blocks of movie facades were destroyed. Though the fire was contained, it was still raging, Jacobs said.
The blaze broke out just before dawn on a sound stage, fire Capt. Frank Reynoso said. A thick column of smoke rose thousands of feet into the air as firefighting helicopters swept in to drop water.
Filming might have been going on at the time the fire broke out and there was at least one explosion, Reynoso said.
