After discovering Nolte trying to extinguish the fire himself shortly after their arrival, firemen put out the flame that started in Nolte’s bedroom.

In a statement, the actor’s publicist says, “There was an electrical fire at Nick Nolte’s house. No one was injured and there was no structural damage to the house. Mr. Nolte is grateful to the Malibu Fire Department and Sheriff’s Department for their quick response and assistance.”

According to, the house has been left with $1 million in structural damage and $500,000 in content damage.
