It was on this day in 1990 that a fire broke out in Universal Studios backlot and destroyed some of the studios’ most iconic stage sets as well as some tourist attractions. Destroyed sets included those used for Back to the Future, a King Kong exhibit and a streetscape. It was the second fire at the studio within 20 years. (Main Image: Wikimedia)
