Fire crews were called to Denzel Washington’s home following reports of smoke on the second floor.
The emergency services visited the property in response to reports of smoke coming out of the second floor of the multi-level abode in Beverly Hills, and though there were no flames visible, crews were said to be searching the property for a possible fire in the walls using thermal imaging cameras.
The Los Angeles Fire Department told SBC LA: “The investigation is largely focused on one of several furnaces in the home that may have been recently serviced.”
Fire official confirmed al occupants of the property were safely evacuated, though it is unclear if the 65-year-old star was there.
Denzel and his wife Pauletta welcomed their son John David and daughter Olivia back to their Los Angeles home this year so they could quarantine together amid the coronavirus pandemic, while their other children Malcom and Katia live nearby.
“I’ve been loving it. My folks are good housemates. They’re fun. I actually feel like the parent sometimes,” said John David.
