Things got out of hand on the set of Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron’s new movie, “The Greatest Showman” when a fire broke out.
A staged fire quickly got out of control during filming Sunday morning; more than 100 firefighters were called to the scene.
“There was a small fire on the set of ‘The Greatest Showman’. The fire was quickly contained and no one was injured. The main cast had already wrapped when the fire occurred,” a rep for 20th Century Fox told People.
According to the New York Post, nearly 150 people were on set when the incident happened.
Apparently, six large lights that were meant to visually increase the glow of the fire fell into it from the roof and caused it to blaze out of control.
Luckily, there were five retired firefighters working on the film as extras who were able to assist in the matter. They used prop hoses attached to nearby fire hydrants to put out the fire.
In the film, Jackman plays the famous founder of the Barnum & Bailey Circus; Efron plays his assistant. The movie also stars Michelle Williams and Zendaya Coleman.
