Cara Delevingne's house in Los Angeles was destroyed by fire

Fire gutted a mansion in Los Angeles belonging to British model and actress Cara Delevingne.

The 31-year-old was not present at the time, as she is currently starring in a play in London's West End.

The pictures show huge flames rising from the roof of the luxury house, and then the smoldering black ruins.

“My heart is broken,” Delevingne wrote on Instagram when she thought her two pet cats had died in the fire.

“Life can change in the blink of an eye, so cherish what you have,” she said.

However, she later informed her 42 million followers of the good news that the cats had survived the fire, writing: “They're alive! Thanks firefighters.”

Two people were injured in the fire that swept through the two-story property in the hills of Studio City, northwest of Hollywood. The Los Angeles Fire Department said a firefighter was taken to the hospital in stable condition, while a resident suffered minor smoke inhalation.

Firefighters were called to the scene after a 911 call was made at around 04:00 local time (11:00 GMT) on Friday.

according to Incident reportThe fire started in the back of the 1970s home and quickly spread to the attic, causing the roof to collapse.

It took 94 firefighters more than two hours to control the fire.

Residents in the area were evacuated while firefighting teams worked to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading to other homes, according to the BBC's partner in the United States. CBS News reported.

Delevingne thanked “from the bottom of my heart… all the firefighters and people who came to help.”

The actress, who made her stage debut this week as Sally Bowles in cabaret at London's Kit Kat Club, reportedly bought the house in 2019.

In a home tour for Architectural Digest in 2021, she described it as “one of my favorite places,” likening it to “a theater for adults” and citing Hugh Hefner as the inspiration behind her choice of decor. Inside, it had a “David Bowie Shrine,” a ball pit, and a set of Japanese puzzle boxes.
