Fire for 007

Buckinghamshire Fire Brigade was called at 11:18 on Sunday 30th July to Pinewood Studios, northwest of London. The Albert Broccoli 007 Stage, the largest sound studio in Europe and which had just completed the filming of Casino Royale, was on fire.

Over 60 firefighters attended but were unable to prevent the collapse of the roof and the destruction of the studio. This is the third major fire at Pinewood Studios and the 007 Stage itself was built following the destruction of the previous James Bond studio in a fire at Pinewood Studios in 1984.

A sprinkler system could have prevented this damage.
