Universal Studios is on fire

Turn to CNN.com or FOXNEWS.com for more info.

Hopefully this won't change too many travelers plans for their California vacations over the next month or two

I have just seen a news report... this is such a terrible shame I hope that the damage isn't too substantial and that LAFD can contain the fire.

What an awful thing to happen, I was there 5 months ago and Universal Studios is such good fun.

Seems to just keep on burning - fingers crossed it dies down soon. Was really looking forward to seeing the back to the future building too! Hopefully things are sorted for when we go over but if not im sure there will be plenty left to do and see. That fox news website is so handy and the connection is so great considering how far away they are. Will keep watching and hope everyone is ok and they get sorted soon.
