A fireman has died on the set of Bruce Willis and Edward Norton's latest movie, as he fought a huge fire in the building in Harlem, New York.

Firefighter Michael Davidson was killed and five other people suffered injuries in the inferno.

The fire started in the basement as the crew were shooting night scenes for Motherless Brooklyn.

Norton is directing the film and co-starring with Willis.

TMZ reports that the production crew called in the blaze, which needed up to 200 firefighters and 44 fire trucks to get under control, early the next morning.
