Sarah Connor's revenge? Fire at former T2 theater at Universal Studios Hollywood

January 23, 2013, 4:24 PM · The theater that housed the Terminator 2 show at Universal Studios Hollywood caught fire today, less than a month after the attraction closed.

According to the local NBC affiliate, a firefighter was taken to a hospital for observation after participating in fighting the fire, which was extinguished a little over one hour after it was reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. The Terminator theater is widely tipped to be the site of Hollywood's version of the Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem attraction that first appeared at Universal Studios Florida. In 2008, a much, much larger fire destroyed much of Universal's backlot, including the old King Kong attraction.

Maybe we've all been played for suckers...what if it's NOT the new home of Despicable Me, but a new Backdraft attraction??
