Video: Fire Rips Through Pierce Brosnan's Malibu Beachfront Mansion
Irish actor Pierce Brosnan had a long night as a fire damaged part of his beachfront Malibu home.Brosnan and his family were alerted by smoke alarms around 9:45 p.m. on Wednesday night of a fire in their home on the 31100 block of Broad Beach Road. It took 20 firefighters almost 40 minutes to knock down the blaze, which started in the garage according to NBC 4. The actor and his family were able to safely get out.
The actor was obviously distraught as he talked to authorities at the scene last night, responding to a photographer at the scene with "What do you think is going on?" when asked what happened. He has made no further statement to the media about the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
