God Punishes Hollywood's Liberal Sins with Raging Fire

June 2, 2008

In an event long-predicted by the Bible, the flagrant sinning of Hollywood was finally punished this weekend when a just but merciless God emptied his wrath onto Universal Studios Hollywood, with a three-alarm fire overtaking the Universal Video Vault, Back to the Future sets, and the ride where you cruise past an animatronic King Kong torso. From the LA Times:

The morning fire, which burned about two city blocks, was not extinguished until about 10 p.m. This morning, 40 to 50 firefighters were still dousing hot spots and turning over charred walls as they looked for smoldering embers, said Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Mike Brown.

The fire affected about three and a half acres of the 391-acre park, a Universal spokesman said this morning, with estimated damages "in the millions" of dollars.

Thankfully, from what I can tell, there only some minor injuries from the blaze, /Film has confirmed the Back to the Future clock tower was mostly spared (phew!), and the studios reopened this morning at 10 to a crowd eager to witness the devastation. ("We want to see what burned down," said 15-year-old Steven Razo.)

Firefighters are still looking into the cause of the fire, if poor water pressure could have hampered efforts to stop it, and if something similar could happen at Universal Studios Florida, thus endangering the Get the Picture video wall and the Aggro Crag.
