Fire burned down a studio at movie company Toei Co. in Kyoto on Sunday afternoon, injuring no one but triggering the evacuation of its adjacent theme park, police and firefighters said.

About 200 employees and other people at the scene escaped the fire, which broke out around 1:30 p.m. and was extinguished about two hours later after destroying the roughly 1,300-sq.-meter facility, which was one of 13 owned by Toei Studios Kyoto, they said.
