LOS ANGELES (AP) - The makers of an anti-Muslim film that sparked violent protests had a one-day permit to shoot parts of the movie at a Los Angeles County ranch and were allowed to use animals and fire.

In the document released Thursday by FilmLA, the group that handles permits for the county, the movie later known as “Innocence of Muslims” is listed as “Desert Warriors” and its production company as Media for Christ.

A $1,195 permit allowed a shoot at Blue Cloud Ranch with 20 actors and 20 crew. Also allowed were the use of animals within regulations and burning torches and barrels to “simulate a building on fire.”

Names of the producer, director and others were redacted before the permit was released.

FilmLA noted it has no control over the content of any permitted film.
