Nick Nolte has reportedly moved in with his ex-wife after escaping the fire in his California home last week.
The Cape Fear actor suffered only minor injuries in the blaze which ripped through his Malibu home on October 7.
The fire reportedly cost Nolte $2m (€1.5m) in damages to his home.
According to reports, the 67-year-old actor has sought refuge with his third wife, Rebecca Linger, and their 22-year-old son, Brawley.
Nolte's longtime partner Clytie Lane and their two-month-old daughter, Sophie, were not at the house at the time of the fire.
A source tells the National Enquirer: "Becky's home is just up the road from Nick's. It was the nearest safe harbor for him and Brawley while they sift through the rubble of the fire.
"The baby's room was ravaged by the fire... Nick cut his hand breaking a window while trying to put out the fire with a garden hose. Still, he's glad to be alive - and counting his blessings that Clytie and (Sophie) weren't there."
Nolte and Linger divorced in 1994.
