1995 Fire

A small fire at Universal Studios on Tuesday morning [31 October 1995] prompted firefighters to shut down four sound stages at the entertainment complex, a Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman said.
Firefighter Larry Duran said the fire started about 9 a.m. near the “Cinemagic” portion of the Universal Studios tour. The fire was doused in about 20 minutes but not before ripping through a wall on Sound Stage No. 32.
Duran said no one was injured. The amount of damage was not disclosed.
The cause was under investigation.
