Here’s Everything You Need to Know About the Massive Blaze at “Harry Potter” Studios in Leavesden
If you’ve been keeping an eye on the news at all, you might be aware of the fire that’s currently raging at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, in the United Kingdom. According to Variety, the fire broke out on Wednesday night, and even though we’re all very worried about all the damage its causing, all the Potterheads out there are especially worried about whether the fire is affecting the Harry Potter studio tour.
Leavesden is very special to Potter fans because all eight Harry Potter movies were filmed there. It seems only fitting that it became the home of the most popular Harry Potter studio tour. Potterheads will be glad to hear that the tour is unaffected by the fire. Thank Merlin!
According to local authorities, the fire is raging within an unused sound stage. Luckily, there have been no injuries, and this morning three additional fire trucks joined the 15 that were already battling the flames. The police have also closed off a local road to allow firetrucks to use water from a nearby canal. According to BBC, there are currently 18 crews tackling the blaze.
A spokesperson for Warner Bros. confirmed that the public studio tours are not being affected by the blaze and that they are proceeding as usual.
It’s times like this that make us wish that we could actually do magic and help put that fire out for good. Hopefully, it’ll be under control soon before it causes too much damage.
