I think it's still burning. I have seen some footage on television and it looks like several soundstages have been destroyed.

I could hear the sirens from my apartment.

It's all just special effects, nothing really got damaged.

Maybe they can start making some movies centered around solid scripts so it's more of a service and less of an environmental problem when they go up in flames.

This isn't the first time this has happened there. You think they'd be more ready this time.

I was thinking that this morning, docmagik, when they were talking about this on the radio (and implying that it was almost out, which apparently was far from true). Given the amount of highly flammable material they have, they really should have much better fire-fighting systems and procedures.

Also, that 4:30 pm time in the article must be 4:30 am. Otherwise it makes no sense at all.
