Hope they're capturing it all on 70mm (or at least high definition video)...it would make a great backdrop for the next Hollywood disaster movie?! :ok:

PS. I hope no real movie-stars got their eyebrows singed... :uhoh:

Probably use the footage in a film about global warming.

Ahh, they must have the same financial year as Australia. Amazing how many fires take place in June. We call it the Jewish stocktake. :uhoh:

Happens here a lot also Mr B generally on old listed building sitting on land bought up by property developers ,all the old Warehoses on the banks of the Tyne west of the bridges all with listed building status all mysteriously caught fire,one even caught fire twice when the fire brigade managed to put the first fire out,second one did the biz though, they were only fit to be demolished.
Also happens a lot on building actually listed for demolition,burns off all the hazardous material and makes the demolition operation much simpler operation.
Police and Fire Brigade always seem to keep very quiet about these events,don't ever recall anybody being done for Arson round here.
:uhoh:

Beeb claiming that the Back to the Future set has been destroyed, though this is not substantiated here:-

If they've still got that De Lorian, they can always step back in time & prevent it from happening?

But can you still GET 1.21 gigawatts....:eek:

What about all that talk about screwing up future events, the space-time continuum?

Where does the conveyor belt discussion fit into all of this?

If someone has been filming the fire, it would probably get a nomination for best documentary at the Oscars, you know what the film industry is like for self-congratulation!

The De Lorian was usually parked up the hill some distance from the town square set. Visited in '99 and did the backlot tour; fire seems to have missed the Bates Motel set; wonder if it affected the 'underground' set where you experience 'just a little earthquake - we get 'em all the time in California'.

Hopefully the script storehouse burnt down and they will need to come up with some original ideas this year. And not Ocean's Eighty Two and Spiderman XXII and The Return of the Superman or whatever was on the anvil. :rolleyes:
