Universal fire blamed on work crew
Written by Robert Niles
A Reuters report cites Los Angeles County Fire officials who are blaming a Universal work crew for the fire that destroyed the King Kong attraction and burned a section of the Universal Studios Hollywood backlot Sunday.Tweet
An investigation revealed the fire was touched off by three members of a studio work crew who had been using a blow torch to apply asphalt shingles to the roof of a building facade.
From the report, I still wonder what happened between 3 am and 4:45. Anyway, the park reopened today, as promised, as did the Studio Tour, which drove by some of the affected areas.
