Agent 007 James Bond’s Pinewood studio gutted by fire

Fire has erupted at Pinewood film studios, in Iver Heath, England, with emergency services rushing to the scene of the incident.

The blaze sent huge plumes of smoke into the air above the site in Slough, Berkshire, reports The Sun.

Reports said firemen focussed on a workshop within the studio complex at around 9.10pm tonight.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this stage.

This will be the fourth fire to hit the studios in 22 years.

The last fire saw The James Bond set at Pinewood Studios destroyed in a fire.

Pinewood has been home to the James Bond stage since 1976, with its construction costing $1.8 million (£1.3 million).

It burned to the ground in June 1984 towards the end of filming of Ridley Scott’s Legend, but was rebuilt and reopened in January 1985.

In July 2006, another fire occurred after production ended on the Bond film Casino Royale.

The set was later demolished and rebuilt in under six months.
