"Back To The Future" Courthouse Square Damaged In Major Fire

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A massive fire has destroyed a set from "Back to the Future," the King Kong exhibit and a video vault at Universal Studios.

Los Angeles County fire Captain Frank Reynoso says the blaze broke out just before dawn Sunday on a backlot stage at the 400-acre property. The fire has been contained.

Officials say the iconic courthouse square from "Back to the Future," has been destroyed, and the famous clocktower that enabled star Michael J. Fox's character to time travel has been damaged.

NBC Universal President and Chief Operating Officer Ron Meyer says 40,000 to 50,000 videos and reels were damaged in the video vault, but there are duplicates in a different location.
