    Small fire contained at Universal Hollywood

    Today a small fire apparently broke out in the now closed Terminator 2 3D attraction at Universal studious Hollywood. The 3D movie theater attraction was closed on January 1st, 2013 to make way for a new attraction based on the Despicable Me franchise.

    The Upper lot is closed from the Blues bros. stage on one end to the Animal Actors Stage on the other end. The only closure seems to be international cafe, baker street bathrooms and Mulligan's Pub.

    In an official statement released at about 3pm PST, a representative from Universal confirmed that a small fire did occur inside the old Terminator 2 3D attraction building. By 2:30 in the afternoon the Los Angeles County Fire Department said that the small fire was out. There were no injuries and guests were no where near the incident. Park hours were not affected by the incident.

    CBS is reporting the fire was started by a welding torch.

    I believe it was a welding torch that started the backlot fire as well.

    Skynet isn't going down without a fight. Hopefully the firefighter who got hurt is alright.

    That was my first thought when I read this, that it was a welding torch that caused the fire. Seems logical, if they're in the process of dismantling the Terminator attraction, that they'd be using welding torches as part of the process.
