Fire At The Hobbit Studios (Updated)

An "industrial explosion" at the Stone Street studios in Miramar where the Hobbit is being filmed has led to the injury of two people. The Hobbit publicist Ceris Prince told The Dominion Post, "One of them had some burnt nostril hairs and, apparently if that's the case, there is always the risk of inhalation so they get checked out." The incident occred when workers where drilling a statue but it did not cause a fire and does not impact filming.

Update: Below is the local New Zealand station reporting about the minor incident.
