Workers blamed for Universal fire
LOS ANGELES — A fire that burned through a large swath of the Universal Studios Hollywood property early Sunday was accidentally sparked by workers using heating tools on a film set, fire officials said yesterday. The blaze reduced a two-block area of the lot to ashes and burned through a set that has appeared in such films as To Kill a Mockingbird. The King Kong attraction featured in the tram tour of the lot was also destroyed. Nine firefighters and a deputy sheriff suffered minor injuries, officials said.
