LOS ANGELES (AP) - A blaze badly damaged a home in the Hollywood Hills that once was occupied by actor Jack Nicholson, injuring two firefighters.

Fire officials say the blaze broke out shortly before 8 p.m. Friday at a house perched on a slope in the Hollywood Hills. Matt Spence, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department, says nearly 90 firefighters were on scene with two being taken to a hospital for unknown injuries.

The fire was knocked down in about 1 1/2 hours. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

According to the Nexis service, Nicholson had lived in the house at one time. Afterhours phone messages left for two of Nicholson’s representatives were not immediately returned.
