  The fire started after overnight maintenance workers used blow torches to repair the roof of a building on one of Universal Studios' many movie sets.

  Flames eventually reached a warehouse known as Building 6197, which housed archives of TV shows, film reels and sound recordings owned by Universal Music Group.

  Though the fire was widely reported at the time, the head of Universal Studios, Ron Meyer, said there had been no major losses.
