Fire on the Universal Studios Backlot

A house fire is a terrible thing to have to live through. All those lost irreplaceable items lost in one tragic turn of events. Simply terrifying.I imagine this is much like what the groundskeepers at the Universal Studios Backlot are experiencing right now after a dramatic fire on the lot.

Yahoo told me:

Hundreds of firefighters are battling a large blaze that broke out on Sunday on a back lot at Universal Studios, site of movie and television production, a spokesman for a neighboring fire department said.

Movie props sell for thousands of dollars for one reason. They are rare. After a movie ends, unless they plan on making more of them many of these props either disappear into obscurity or they are coveted by rabid collectors.

Anything they made for ongoing series that was damaged would be easy enough to replace. They built it once, why not again. But if they have no use for it, then keeping it around is simply for the tourists or purely for nostalgia sake.

It will be sad to see some of these treasures disappear for no good reason.
