Fire crews were called to extinguish a blaze at Pinewood Studios fire last Friday, according to a report by the Buckinghamshire Advertiser. The paper reports:
They managed to prevent the blaze, which started in a catering lorry being used to feed the cast and crew of new Bond film Skyfall, from causing serious damage to the rest of the studios in Iver Heath.
“Crews from Gerrards Cross and Slough used a hose reel and main jet to tackle the fire, which was now spreading to the roof from becoming fully involved and the incident from becoming much more serious.”
It is believed that the cause of the fire was a fault in either the electrical or gas supply to the catering lorry.
Fire-fighters stayed until it was completely extinguished and left Pinewood at 1 a.m. The fire has not had any impact on the filming of Skyfall but does seem a little careless – after all, the 007 Stage has burned down twice now.
