On This Day: Universal Studios fire – HISTORY

On June 1, 2008, a massive, early morning fire at the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park and studio backlot in Universal City, California destroys a trove of irreplaceable recordings by some of the greatest musical artists in American history, thousands of archived digital and video film copies and King Kong Encounter, one of the park’s most popular attractions. The fire caused no serious injuries, but artists and others mourned the loss of cultural treasure.

An investigation revealed the three-alarm fire began when a worker used a blowtorch to warm asphalt shingles. The worker left before checking if all spots had cooled.
