The firefighters spent nearly an hour to put out the fire on Thursday, March 10 at Leavesden Film Studios in Hertfordshire, England.

Firefighters were called to the movie studios where the "" franchise was filmed after a blaze broke out on Thursday, March 10. It took emergency services nearly an hour to put out the fire at Leavesden Film Studios, which is owned by Warner Bros., in Hertfordshire, England.

The cause of the blaze and the extent of the damage is not yet known. A security worker tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Fortunately the block where the fire started was empty because of refurbishment. But things could easily have got a lot worse if staff hadn't acted quickly."

A tourist attraction is due to open at the studios next year - "The Making of Harry Potter" tour will allow fans to see the movies' sets, costumes and props.
