Fire Breaks Out On Set of Transformers 4
In what is apparently an unfortunate tradition of accidents on the sets of live action Transformers films, The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog updated today with ABC news affiliate KVUE's report on a fire breaking out on the set of Transformers 4. The report states that a fire broke out on set and was a "controlled fire". One person was injured with a broken ankle. TMZ later reported with an update stating:
A fire broke out on the Texas set of "Transformers 4"... causing major damage to a 100-year-old home... and officials believe it may have been caused by movie pyrotechnics.
A rep for the Pflugerville Fire Department tells us ... the fire started in the attic ... but emergency responders sprung into action and were able to extinguish the blaze before it had a chance to damage the rest of the home.
Unfortunately, the FD says the attic suffered "substantial damage." The rep says, "There was one injury to a civilian who was transported to the hospital by Austin Travis County EMS. We have no other information on this person or their injury." We're told... officials believe burning embers from pyrotechnics may have caused the blaze, but they're not sure at this point.
So far, the fire is being ruled as "accidental." The FD says the home has been released back to the homeowner
Hopefully this will be the only accident and injury for the remainder of the filming!
不幸的是，消防指挥说阁楼遭受了“实质性的损害。”发言人说，“有一个受伤的平民被Austin Travis County 的EMS救援车送到医院。我们对伤者和伤情没有更进一步的消息。”官方消息称，烟火特效的灰烬可能是引起这次火灾的罪魁祸首，但这一点未得到确认。
