17 Mar – A fire has broken out at UK's Pinewood Studios, where Disney's upcoming live-action film, "Snow White" is currently filming.

According to Variety, the incident reportedly occurred after a tree caught alight near the stage that was under construction for the film, which had then led to a huge blaze.

Sources also stated that the fire is believed to have broken out in the Richard Attenborough stage, with one witness telling The Sun, "A set made up of a lot of wood, and trees etc was currently being built in the Richard Attenborough stage. Rumour is a piece of set has caught alight and spread across the rest of the set. Some crew in the studio were shaken but evacuated without injury."

However, a Disney source stressed that no filming was underway during that time and no casualties have been reported.

The upcoming movie stars Rachel Zegler as the titular character, with "Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot playing the Evil Queen.

This is not the first time the Pinewood sets have caught fire. It had occurred twice before during the production of Ridley Scott's 1984 film, "Legend" and 2006's "Casino Royale.
