News is making its rounds around the internet that an out of control fire caused unintentional damage to the Hogwarts set during the filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Nobody was hurt, though six fire engines were dispatched to Leavesden to combat the blaze.

The fire was caused by explosives being used during the production.

“We were shooting the scenes where Hogwarts gets blown up during the battle. But fire managed to catch hold of the set and it went up in flames. It was completely out of control at one point.”

The damage has been estimated as high as £110,000. Warner Brothers has stated that production is continuing as planned, despite the setback.
