'Skyfall' catering truck causes fire at Pinewood

30-Jan-2012 • Skyfall

Although the production of the 23rd James Bond adventure, "Skyfall", currently shooting at Pinewood was unaffected, a catering truck feeding the cast and crew caught alight earlier this week.

The fire broke out on January 27 at 9.59pm. Around 30 fire fighters from Gerrards Cross, Beaconsfield, High Wycombe, Great Missenden, London and Berkshire were called to the incident.

Denis Melia, of Gerrards Cross fire station told the Buckinghamshire Advisor: "The lorry was well alight, with flames reaching the top of the adjacent building."

"Crews from Gerrards Cross and Slough used a hose reel and main jet to tackle the fire, which was now spreading to the roof from becoming fully involved and the incident from becoming much more serious."

It took firemen until 1am to completely extinguish the blaze and secure the area.

Thanks to `slyfox` for the alert.
