Fire at AVM Studio

A landmark of the neighbourhood, the 60-year-old AVM Studio in Vadapalani was in news on August 31.

A major fire ravaged two floors of the studio. Of them one had a set erected for actor Vijay’s starrer ‘Vettaikaran’ and was gutted in the wee hours of the day.

Fire tenders took about two hours to douse the raging fire. It could have been due to electric short circuit, firemen said.

The fire spread from the sixth floor where a television channel had its set. Then, it spread to the ‘Vettaikaran’ set that had lots of combustible material like thermocole.

No one was injured.
