Firefighters tackle blaze at Warner Bros studios”

Replace: Firefighters have now put out the blaze that broke at Warner Bros. studios in Leavesden in a single day.

More than 15 fire engines are at the studios and it is understood the blaze began in one of the stages.

James Bond movies, as well as Fast And Furious and Mission: Impossible titles were also filmed there. Crews rushed to the site overnight and continued to battle the fire into Thursday afternoon, before it was finally extinguished after 2 p.m. local time (9 a.m. ET).

A fire has broken out at Warner Bros studios in Watford - the famous filming location in which Harry Potter was filmed.

The council said the set was not being used at the time and there had been no injuries.

HCC says 18 fire engines and support vehicles attended the scene to tackle the fire.

A MASSIVE fire has torn through one of Britain's most iconic film studios - home to Harry Potter and James Bond.

Warner Bros was not immediately available for comment but the BBC reports that the public studio tours are unaffected and taking place as usual.

Fire crews are still at the Warner Bros studios in Hertfordshire after a blaze broke out the night of July 10.

Warner Bros bought the site in 2010.

Mark Hancock, who lives nearby, said: "My house is only about 200m away from the perimeter fence and we have a clear line of sight over gardens so we managed to see it out one of our windows".

Smoke was seen billowing over the studios through the night and this morning, with a strong smell of smoke still in the air this morning.
