Denzel Washington made it to the top trending topics again after his house caused a massive fire scare.
Earlier this week, Denzel Washington and his family became the talk of the down after their home, reportedly, caught fire.
According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, they received a report about smoke emanating from the house’s second floor.
However, upon their arrival at the scene, they spotted no fire, but the smoke continued to come out of the home. The officials then sent the residents away from the neighborhood before finding out the source of the smoke.
What happened inside Denzel Washington’s home?
To find the source of the smoke, the LAPD used thermal imaging cameras. They used it to assure that no flames were active during the search.
“Source of that smoke was determined to be one of several furnaces in the home that was recently serviced, and has now been taken safely off-line,” the official report reveals.
They found out that the furnace was just recently serviced, so what triggered the occurrence is still unknown.
After assuring that it was already safe, the firefighters guided the people back to their residences again. No one was injured during the incident.
Alan Neirob, the actor’s press representative, said to Fox News that Washington’s family is also safe.
“There is no fire and everyone is OK and safe,” Neirob revealed.
