Billowing smoke and shocked bystanders. Several people were feared dead after a fire swept through an animation studio in Japan on Thursday (July 18). It's thought the blaze in the city of Kyoto was an arson attack. And the main suspect is a man who shouted "Die" as he doused the building with petrol. Authorities said scores were also injured when the building was torched. The studio produces popular series such as "Sound! Euphonium." Its "Free! Road to the World - The Dream" movie is due for release this month. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called the fire "too appalling for words" on Twitter and offered condolences to the victims. Public broadcaster NHK said police have taken a 41-year-old man into custody.
