In the filming of Die Hard 5, while not on set, Bruce Willis had heard of a fire stunt that had gone wrong in Budapest that caused a whole building to become inflamed, so Willis rushed to the scene to check things out.
The incident happened on July 6th, 2012. The scene involved a helicopter, though the aircraft’s own blades (estimated to being 200ft in circumference), had fanned the “controlled” fire, which caused it to spread beyond the limits of it being “controlled” anymore.
The stuntman himself was not injured, and fire crews from the area itself had attended the scene to control the blaze.
RadarOnline had heard that the property had been constructed out of wood that was made specifically for the shoot of the movie, while the fire was supposed to break out just in the lobby just as the helicopter was to land.
Willis, who had been reprising his own role as John McClane in the sequel to his other Die Hard movies, was supposed to take the rest of the afternoon off at the hotel nearby.
Though the 57-year old actor had raced to the set after getting a call with the news about the fire.
He arrived just a few minutes after the blaze had started and tried to help out in salvaging equipment and also cameras that were in danger of being demolished, or burned.
