Though the venue had to be evacuated, Cruise and the attendees were not in harm’s way. Emergency responders rushed to the scene to battle the blaze, which filled the sky with billowing clouds of smoke.

As Gossip Cop reported, “The View” host was in the middle of a stand-up show in Canada when her tour bus went up in flames. Catastrophe struck a different Cruise film in early September, when a small plane assigned to the crew for his upcoming crime-thriller “Mena” crashed in Colombia, killing two people.

The sequel to 2012’s action flick, “Never Go Back” is scheduled to make its way out across the United States on October 21, 2016.
