Oops, someone must have cast the wrong spell. An accidental fire broke out last week on the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but luckily no one was injured.

"It was a big special-effects scene," a spokesman for Harry Potter tells the Watford Observer. "Unfortunately, there was a small fire as a result of that. As a precaution -- as we had already mobilized our own in-house fire team who had it under control -- the fire brigade was called and it was put out in under an hour."

The fire occurred during filming for a battle sequence that will appear in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II. The franchise's biggest stars, Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, and Rupert Grint weren't present at UK's Leavesden Studios when the small blaze broke out. Even though it wasn't a serious fire, it's still estimated to have caused $150,000 in damage.
