Twelve fire engines have tackled a blaze at Pinewood Studios, which is believed to have broken out on the facility’s Richard Attenborough stage.
Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service confirmed the blaze at 3.13pm on Tuesday afternoon, stating its crews were dealing with a “fire in [an] industrial unit” on Pinewood Road in Iver Heath.
The firefighters are understood to have used ten sets of breathing apparatus, three hose reels and one main jet to tackle the fire.
Thames Valley Police and South Central Ambulance Service were also in attendance.
Images posted on social media show the fire took place close to a mock thatched cottage, which is believed to be part of the set for Disney’s new live action Snow White film.
“A set made up of a lot of wood, and trees etc was currently being built in the Richard Attenborough stage,” an unnamed source told The Sun. “Rumour is a piece of set has caught alight and spread across the rest of the set. Some crew in the studio were shaken but evacuated without injury.”
