Michael Bay opens up about Transformers set fire

Transformers director Michael Bay has commended the firefighters who saved the day when a fire broke out on the set of the latest Transformers movie.

The 48-year-old The Purge moviemaker has opened up about the incident on his blog, writing: "Shooting of Transformers 4 is going great with Wahlberg and the new cast. We are having a great time in Texas... Yes there was a small smouldering fire at a house and no, no one was injured during the fire. And no, no one 'just narrowly escaped' as the news dramatically states. A crew member though twisted his ankle after falling in a gopher hole on the ranch.

"The fire was put out in a brief 15 minutes by a great fire crew on set. It was an attic fire and cause is unknown. No we were not shooting in the attic, we were shooting outside on the ranch."

Transformers 4 is set for release next summer 2014.
