Calvin Harris’ Beverly Hills mansion catches FIRE after ‘electrical mishap’ – with huge blaze causing $100K of damage

  • Several fire trucks and even helicopters rushed to Harris’ home Wednesday night
  • Firefighters extinguished a fire located near an HVAC unit
  • Apparently Harris was not home at the time and was renting the house

Calvin Harris is probably breathing a sigh of relief after his Beverly Hills mansion was saved from a potentially devastating house fire Wednesday night.

Emergency personnel received a call about the smell of smoke filling the home around 8:25 p.m., law enforcement sources said TMZ.

Emergency crews appeared to treat the fire as a major emergency, as sources said as many as 10 fire engines may have been sent to the DJ’s home, along with 20 responders, believed to be a mix of firefighters and EMTs.

Harris, who nearly had an awkward run-in with ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift at the Grammy Awards earlier this month, was reportedly not home at the time of the fire, which caused an estimated $100,000 in damage.

DailyMail.com has reached out to his representatives for comment.

The initial call reported that the fire appeared to have originated from one of the mansion’s upper floors.

Eyewitnesses even said that they saw smoke escaping from the roof of the hill house.

Other people at the scene shared that they saw ambulances arriving with the fire trucks, and helicopters were even spotted swarming around, although it is not clear if they were part of the emergency response or if they were news helicopters.

The procedure involves firefighters cutting open sections of the exterior to allow smoke and heat to escape to prevent explosions and allow responders to search for survivors more safely, although the procedure must be done carefully to avoid giving a roaring fire more oxygen than to give fuel. .

Sources said the fire eventually came from an area on the third floor near the home theater.

It reportedly started in a hidden area near an HVAC system, which required firefighters to break through a portion of the second-floor roof to gain access to the room.

The emergency service personnel reportedly got the fire under control in about 52 minutes, and luckily no one was injured.

Harris would have heard about the fire from elsewhere, as he was apparently not home at the time.

Sources told the publication that he had rented the mansion in recent years.

In 2022, he put the 10-bedroom home on the market for an eye-popping $25 million, which would have netted him a cool $10 million profit.

However, it seems that he has not yet found a buyer.
