Report: AXL ROSE 'Fought To Save His Home' From Wildfire

November 25, 2007

KCAL-TV (Channel 9),an independent station in Los Angeles, California owned by CBS Corporation, is reporting that GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose has plenty to be thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend, but it was a close call. The wildfire in Southern California that left six firefighters hurt and destroyed dozens burnt his roof and all around his expansive property.

Rose's assistant Beta Lebeis, who lives on the property, says the rock legend fought to save his home. "He helped a lot," she said. "He did a lot. He was with the hose everywhere. Then the firetruck came in and locked us. So then they told us, 'Just close the garage doors and just go back in. There's nothing you can do,' because it was like an inferno outside."

A KCAL-TV report on the Malibu wildfire — which includes shots of Axl's home and a short interview with Rose's assistant — can be viewed below.
