Nick Nolte has escaped a fire that burned a Malibu home to the ground.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says the actor slightly cut his hand when he broke a window and fled the home shortly after 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The Sheriff's Department says an electrical malfunction caused the fire, which caused an estimated $3.5 million in damage and left the home a total loss.
A call and e-mail to Nolte's publicist Arnold Robinson were not immediately returned.
