Bo Derek's quick thinking helped save her remote California home from going up in smoke.

The 10 actress spotted a fire when it broke out on the property next to hers in Santa Ynez Valley, and turned her garden hose on the flames.

The fire continued to spread but Derek did enough to contain the damage it caused before firefighters arrived on the scene.

Her publicist insists, "She wasn't hurt."
