Nick Nolte Escapes Burning House - Conflicting Reports Emerge

Nick Nolte had a bad Tuesday morning. It seems his Malibu California house caught on fire and he tried to put it out himself, and then broke a window to escape.

The fire broke out about 11:30 in the morning at the actor's beachfront complex in Malibu, and was fully involved by the time firefighters arrived.

Fire department spokesman Scott Chew said,

"The occupant of the house, actor Nick Nolte, received a small cut on his right hand when he broke a window to escape the fire."

The fire department said the house was a total loss, but Nolte's rep says, "No one was injured and there was no structural damage to the house".

Paramedics at the scene treated the actor for cuts and minor smoke inhalation, but Nolte refused to go to the hospital.

Press reports put the damage anywhere between $1.5-$3.5 million dollars, and have quoted Nolte as saying a computer printer in his office started the fire. The celebrity said he is considering filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Nolte has just completed work on the thriller "Nine Miles Down", about a security expert who is sent to a remote scientific camp to investigate strange things that are happening.

The actor is currently filming the dramatic "Arcadia Lost", due next March and starring Nolte and Haley Bennett. The film is a coming-of-age story with a mystery at its core, and explores Greece through the eyes of teenage Americans who encounter a country of mystery, life and death, and the sacred and blasphemous.
