Located amidst farmlands in China's Zhejiang province, the Hengdian Studios have been the site of numerous Chinese movie shoots. Locals in the area, presumably used to fires on the set, did not think much of it when a real one broke out.
A video on YouTube shows the extent of the fire:
It was only after a good while, when the raging fire did not abate, that someone called emergency services, according to the Shanghaiist.
Firefighters reached the area at around 7 am and managed to extinguish the blaze. Luckily, no one was hurt in the fire.
