A Fair City actor living in California has said he believes his home has been destroyed in the wilderness.

Victor Burke told RTE News that he and his family ran for their car and fled home when they saw 100ft flames that came across the mountains.

The fires spread at great speed, Burke said, and every five minutes the flames "football plans" moved closer.

"We just ran. I took the kids and the dog and what we could take … and drove north," he said.

Mr Burke and his family have lived in Malibu for the last three years, and they now live in a hotel as they figure out their next plan

The actor said he was very worried about some of his friends, which he has not heard from yet.

He said the winds were expected to retrieve and described the whole situation as "rather gloomy".
