It doesn’t matter if you live in a millionaire mansion or a shack by the side of the road, the chances of your house catching on fire still remain the same. These eight celebs whose homes caught on fire are lucky to be alive, whether it was a the hand of Mother Nature or a jealous ex. Some stars were even able to shed a positive light on the dreary situation.
1. Drew Barrymore
Remember when Drew was married to Tom Green? Back in 2001, the couple’s Beverly Hills home was nearly gutted by a house fire that began in the wee hours of the morning. Barrymore’s dog Flossie was the main alert of the fire that left nearly $700,000 in damages. It took over an hour for 55 firefighters and 11 engines to douse the flames.
2. Kat Von D
The famed tattoo artist became even more well known when she was exposed as the woman who tore apart Sandra Bullock and Jesse James’ five-year marriage. Call it karma, but in 2010 Von D’s Los Angeles home caught fire and also claimed the life of her cat, Valentine. The LA Ink star was sued by her insurance agency for nearly a million dollars because they believed that she was responsible for the blaze. Kat claims she was half way across the country on a book tour and had no idea who would have left multiple lit candles unattended in her home.
