Pierce Brosnan's Malibu house caught fire on Wednesday night (11.02.15).

The home on Broad Beach Road was ablaze for just over 30 minutes but brave fire-fighters were able to contain the fire and limit it to just the garage on the side of the large property.

Michael Pittman of the Los Angeles County Fire Department told the New York Daily News newspaper that the fire started at approximately 9:48 pm and it took 50 fire-fighters to extinguish it.

Brosnan - who lives with his journalist wife Keely Shaye Smith and their two teenage sons, Dylan and Paris - nor anyone else was injured in the incident and the actor was seen standing outside his home looking on at the efforts of the emergency services to get the flames under control.

The 61-year-old actor's neighbour, NBC photo-journalist Kenny Holmes, revealed details of the fire on his Twitter account.

Along with photos, he tweeted: "Heavy smoke & fire last night from the garage of Pierce Brosnan's Malibu home. No injuries. Damage to garage/bedroom. (sic)"

Former James Bond star Brosnan's other neighbours include Danny DeVito and Dustin Hoffman.
