“The set was not being used at the time of the fire. There are no injuries,” a council spokesperson added.

All eight of the Harry Potter films, along with movies from the James Bond, Fast and Furious and the Mission Impossible franchises have been filmed at the studios.

When reached for comment, a representative for Warner Bros. referred TheWrap to the Hertfordshire County Council statement.

The location, which is around 20 miles from central London, is also home to a public studio tour about the making of the Harry Potter movies and Wizarding World. That has been unaffected and is taking place as usual, according to BBC News.
