As fire continues to ravage the Californian coast, incredible aerial photos show just how close one celebrity’s home came to being destroyed.

Anthony Hopkins’ Malibu mansion narrowly escaped the Woolsey fire, with vegetation surrounding it and a property next door going up in smoke.

So far at least 59 deaths have been reported with 300 people unaccounted for in blazes across northern and southern California.

The Woolsey fire, which hit the celebrity enclave of Malibu, has claimed two lives and destroyed 98,000 acres but is expected to be under control by Monday.

Amazingly, the Silence Of The Lambs star’s grass lawn and two deck chairs remain untouched by the blaze.

Also narrowly escaping the wildfire was Pierce Brosnan, whose home with aerial shots showing the flames just reached the outskirts of his property.

Other celebrities weren’t so lucky, with Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, Robin Thicke, Gerard Butler and Kim Basinger all having their homes destroyed by fire.

Scores of other famous faces were forced to evacuate, including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Lady Gaga and Will Smith.

Hemsworth shared a photo to Instagram revealing his and Cyrus’ home had been razed to the ground by flames.

“It’s been a heartbreaking few days. This is what’s left of my house,” he captioned the photo, urging people to donate to emergency services.

Butler also shared pictures of his destroyed home, describing the fire damage as “like a war zone”.
