Kidding aside, luckily no-one was seriously hurt. The fire department had a major water-pressure problem which caused a lot of challenges when battling the blaze. The fire also destroyed sets used in the film King Kong and tv shows like Monk and House. Here’s a couple perspectives regarding the fire:
