That massive fire that broke out this morning on the back lot of the Universal Studios ended up destroying quite a few things – among them a huge King Kong exhibit and the courthouse square used in the Back to the Future movies was destroyed.

The blaze began around 4:45 a.m. PT (7:45 a.m. ET) Sunday. Two “prop” buildings, a chapel, and a popular ride called the “Cyclone” were among the damaged structures, according to Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Frank Reynoso.

The Universal Studios Theme Park did open at noon today, and those expecting to see the MTV Movie Awards can rest assured that the “awards” show will go on.
