Its been reported that L.A. Firefighters responded to a call on Wednesday claiming that they could see smoke coming from the 2nd floor of Denzel Washington’s Beverly Crest home.
According to sources, Washington’s home was searched prior to going to the roof. No active fires were found. The responders used thermal imaging to check the walls for concealed flats.
A representative from the LAFD said in a statement saying: “Firefighters thoroughly searched the 28,887 square-foot four-story premises (three floors above ground) with thermal imaging cameras to confirm there were no concealed flames related to the smoke they noted on the second floor upon their arrival,” they continued. “The 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. There were no injuries, and all occupants have been allowed to return inside the residence. Firefighters have departed the scene.”
Later on a representative for Washington and his family said that they are “OK and safe”. No information was given as to whether or not the Washingtons were home at the time of the incident.
