According to sources, Globo has dispensed with conventional woods and used “fire retardant” materials and polymers.
The fire that engulfed the scenic town of “Todas as Flores” in Estúdios Globo this afternoon could have been much worse. Although the flames left a trail of destruction at the Rhodes & Co. Suit, the sets have flame retardant material which prevented it from spreading and even greater tragedy.
According to sources, Globo has stopped using conventional wood and has been using “fire retardant” materials and polymers, which prevent fire from spreading in the studios.
In 2017, these materials prevented the fire that consumed the setting of the soap opera “Deus Salve o Rei” from creating new fires. At the time the flames consumed only a shed with soap opera castles.
The broadcaster reported that the fire on Friday (11/18) had already been brought under control, but the recordings of “Mar do Sertão” and “Travessia” were suspended due to the smoke and the work of the fire brigade fire. Both soap operas are made near the affected place.
By the way, the actress Lucy Alves (from “Travessia”) used social networks to comment on the damage. Brisa’s interpreter said those involved in the fire are fine. “Everything under control, everyone is fine. That’s what matters,” she said via Instagram Stories.
The broadcaster also ensured that the fire had no impact on the production of “Todas as Flores”, “since the interior of the set affected by the fire, the Rhodes shop [& Co. Tailleur]is reproduced in the studio”.
So far the broadcaster has not commented on material damage. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
“Todas as Flores” is a telenovela streamed on Globoplay.
