Hawke's Office Destroyed By Fire
TRAINING DAY star ETHAN HAWKE's personal business office in New York was destroyed by a fast-moving fire on Sunday morning (26MAR06). The actor is currently directing and starring in a movie version of his first novel, THE HOTTEST STATE. The fire broke out in a newly renovated office on the second floor of Hawke's office building and the blaze quickly spread all the way up to the fifth floor. As the fire worked its way up, it ripped through and completely destroyed Hawke's fourth-floor office and his post-production studio. Master tapes and negatives from Hawke's film, which also stars MICHELLE WILLIAMS and LAURA LINNEY, were being stored off-site and were reportedly not destroyed by the fire.
