    Back to The Future Set Destroyed in Fire

    The fire in Universal Studios that I mentioned yesterday did not claim any lives. Unfortunately it did result in the destruction of the Back to the Future town square set….

    There were the 4 large explosions at 4 to 4:30 BEFORE the fire that woke the surrounding city up. Since Sunday morning the media has stopped asking about them. This idea that all these buildings burned from a blow-torch on shingles on the wooden facade doesn’t explain how it jumped between so many unconnected buildings over such a wide area. It’s as if 4 seperate explosions went off to start the fire.

    The media coverage has been very patchy. Has the studio made any official statements?
