A building in Hungary which was used to shoot 'A Good Day to Die Hard' was burned out of control when Willis' stunt double filmed an action scene on Thursday, July 5.

Bad news came from the set of Bruce Willis' upcoming actioner "A Good Day to Die Hard". It has been reported that on Thursday, July 5, a 5-storey building which was used to shoot the movie in Budapest was accidentally set on fire. The incident reportedly happened when Willis' stunt double was filming an explosion scene on the location.

Sources told Radar Online that the building was "constructed out of wood just for the shoot," and a fire was "supposed to break out in the lobby of the place just as a helicopter was about to land." It was said that the stunt double was working when the heli was about to land and the blades, which were predicted to be around 200 ft. in circumference, accidentally fanned the fire out of control that it "sent flames racing throughout the entire building."

Luckily, Willis' stunt was not injured during the accident as firefighters near the areas quickly showed up on the scene to control the blaze. Willis himself was not there when the fire burned the set. He was reportedly taking the afternoon off at a hotel, but later raced to the set after receiving a phone call informing him about the fire.

The former husband of Demi Moore arrived shortly after the blaze started. He reportedly attempted to salvage the equipments and cameras which were in danger of getting burned. 20th Century Fox has yet to make an official statement regarding the accident which destroyed the set that took two months to construct.

"A Good Day to Die Hard" is scheduled to open in the U.S. on February 14, 2013.
