The Burning of Rome

From StudioBriefing 8.10.2007

Rome burned again Thursday night -- that is, many of the sets used for the production of the HBO series Rome. Fire -- always a plague of movie studios -- struck Rome's famed Cinecitta studios around 10:00 p.m., starting in an area used to warehouse old film, Reuters reported. Old film stock is regarded as highly inflammable and is usually kept in cold storage. Cinecitta officials speculated, however, that the fire was started by a short circuit. Although at one point flames were seen rising more than 100 feet into the air, firefighters were able to limit the damage to the sprawling -- and costly -- Rome set, which Cinecitta officials said they hoped to use for future production.

"Cinecitta's fire marshal was unavailable for comment."
