Russell Crowe reveals his sprawling property was hit by a bushfire overnight – after neighbours claimed firefighters left their homes to burn to save the Russell Crowe ' s sprawling mansion near Coffs Harbour was hit by bushfire last night as New South Wales endured 'catastrophic' fire conditions.

Bushfires are a common and deadly threat in Australia's hot summers, but the blazes have arrived earlier this year, spurred by dry conditions after three years of drought, and have already claimed three lives.

In a post showing burned ground and charred objects at his his property in northeast New South Wales state, Crowe said: "lost a couple of buildings, but overall very lucky so far. Chapel roof scorched."

He thanked those on the ground and said no livestock or horses had died.

"Let the chickens out and they are back, warm worms for breakfast!", the actor tweeted.
