Actor Pierce Brosnan’s Southern California home was damaged in a fire but no one was injured, officials said on Thursday. About 20 firefighters responded to the fire at the actor's home in Malibu late on Wednesday and knocked down the flames in 35 minutes, said Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Rick Flores. The fire burned the garage and caused smoke damage to an upstairs room, Flores said. Brosnan, 61, who starred in four James Bond movies between 1995 and 2002, and his family were alerted by a smoke detector and got out of the house safely, KABC-TV reported, showing video footage of the grim-faced actor standing on the street while firefighters doused the blaze.
"But I felt the risk of vaccine was worse." College-educated, middle-class and white, Orion is like many in this quaint city of 21,000 just north of the California border who have declined to vaccinate their children. As measles cases have spread in the United States and a new outbreak of mumps has sickened at least 23 people in the northwest states of Idaho and Washington, much attention has been focused on parents who decline some or all vaccinations for their children. In Ashland, a quarter of kindergarteners started school last year without all their vaccinations, among the highest rates in the country.
