Robert De Niro, Oscar-winning actor, is making headlines this week due to a blaze that broke out in his NYC apartment. The source, not a blazing gun fight, but a clothes dryer!
Firefighters took nearly an hour to battle the blaze, which started after lint in a clothes dryer sparked flames. The fire spread to the entire fifth floor, damaging the buildings 4th, 5th and 6th floors.
Luckily, De Niro and his family were out of the country when the blaze erupted, and nobody was injured by the fire.
