Ryan Seacrest is lucky to be unharmed after a fire broke out at his home.
The former American Idol host revealed Monday morning on Instagram there was a fire at his Beverly Hills mansion on Sunday that charred some of his belongings.
"Fire last night at the house -- thank god everyone is ok," Seacrest 42, captioned a photo of what appears to be rubble on an outdoor patio area. "Thanks again @beverlyhillsfirefighters."
Furniture seemed to burn as well as other items scattered outside of Seacrest's mansion.
An electrical fire ignited on Seacrest's driveway, according to TMZ, and ended up jumping to nearby trash cans. The mansion reportedly remains mostly intact after the blaze.
The Beverly Hills Fire Department toldEntertainment Tonight that they received a call around 1:27AM PT at the radio personality's home, where they extinguished the electrical fire in about 15 to 20 minutes.
Seacrest, who hosted all 15 seasons of American Idol, bought the house from talk show host Ellen DeGeneres after she listed it for $49 million in 2012.
The property reportedly boasts nine bedrooms, has over 9,000 square feet of space and sits on more than three acres of land.
In addition to hosting his syndicated radio show and running a production company, Seacrest may have more job opportunities to choose from in the near future.
FreemantleMedia production company is reportedly in talks with NBC to bring American Idol back, while the network may also be looking for a new America's Got Talent host. Sources say Seacrest's name has been tossed around as a potential replacement for Nick Cannon on the summer series.
