Hace unas horas se ha producido una explosión y un incendio en un taller de los estudios de Peter Jackson "Stone Street" en Miramar, donde se rueda "The Hobbit".
Al parecer hay 2 heridos que han sido trasladados al hospital de Wellington.
El portavoz de WingnutFilms ha comunicado que el accidente no interrumpirá el calendario de rodaje.
Two people have been hurt in an explosion at the studios where the Hobbit is being filmed.
The fire service has confirmed they were called to an "industrial explosion" at the Stone St studios in Miramar at 11.24am. Wellington Free Ambulance has confirmed two people were treated at the scene and they are being transported to hospital.
The Hobbit unit publicist Ceris Price said calling the incident an explosion was a "slight overstatement''.
The incident happened in one of the workshops when "a couple of the guys'' were drilling a statue, Ms Price said.
The pair were left with "mild burns but nothing serious'' and were taken to hospital as a precaution, she said.
"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.''
She said no fire was caused by the incident.
Recordemos que no es el primer accidente que ha sucedido. Antes de comenzar el rodaje en marzo, hubo un incendio de graves consecuencias que destruyo varias de las maquetas que tenían almacenadas.
Estaremos atentos a las próximas noticias.
