Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed that they were called to the home of Hollywood movie star Denzel Washington after receiving a call reporting smoke billowing from the house, a four-story mansion that sits in the neighbourhood of Beverly Crest.
The Fire Service reported no no flames on arrival and were using thermal imaging cameras to uncover the source of the smoke.
They added that the initial investigation was on one of the furnaces at the home which had recently had a service.
A spokesman for the star said that “everyone is ok and safe”. Washington, 65, has been married to his wife, Paulette, since 1983 and has, to date, won two Academy Awards, the first being for Best Supporting Actor in the Civil War drama “Glory” released in 1989 and the second for Best Actor for his portrayal of corrupt detective Alonzo Harris in the 2001 film “Training Day.”
His son, John David Washington, is also a Hollywood star and had the lead role in Christopher Nolan’s recent blockbuster Tenet.
