A British studio used as the set of "Casino Royale" was consumed by fire on Sunday, July 30.
A serious fire incident unexpectedly occurred on the set of "Casino Royale", the latest installment of James Bond franchise, at Britain's Pinewood Studios on Sunday, July 30, collapsing the roof of a sound stage transformed into a replica of Venice for the production of the movie.
While the cause of the fire had not yet been known, no one was believed to be hurt fortunately. In the meantime, it took about 50 firefighters and eight fire engines to tackle the blaze as there were several cylinders of flammable gas exploded during the occurrence.
What comes as a relief is that the filming for "Casino Royale" turns out to have been completed, so the incident is unlikely to bring any undesirable impact to the film production in conclusion. "Its film sets were in the process of being removed," so the studio has said in a statement.
