I also hope everything is ok, it sounds like it didn't do much.

Hopefully if any props got damaged it would only be a wicket costume or something.

Doesn't the Ranch have its own fire department?

I can't imagine that anything could ever smell worse than the stench of a burning nearly 30 year old Ewok suit that was for many weeks internally marinated with midget sweat.

Guess no one is worried about actual people potentially being hurt in the fire, just if props were damaged. Nice.

Glad to hear that there was no major damage. I'll be curious to know what caused the fire.

^Nah, I'm pretty sure a reactor leak was what caused the fire.
