Huge blaze breaks out at Warner Bros studios as police cordon off area

A huge fire broke out at the Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire at 11.29pm on Wednesday 10 July.

Filmed on July 11, police have closed roads around the site, while firefighters continue to make the area safe.

18 fire engines, plus support vehicles, are currently in attendance at the scene and crews are tackling a fire in one of the stages.

The site is next to the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour attraction which shows guests behind the scenes.

All eight Harry Potter films, as well as other movies including James Bond, Fast and Furious and the Mission Impossible franchises, have filmed at the studios.

The site, which covers almost 200 acres, was previously an aircraft factory called Leavesden Aerodrome that was central to production during World War II.

A spokesman for Warner Bros would not comment on the fire other than to confirm it was ongoing. He said the public studio tours were unaffected and taking place as usual.
