Hollywood hunk Chad Michael Murray was caught in the fire which struck filming on his latest movie HOUSE OF WAX last summer (04).

The 23-year-old actor - who stars alongside socialite Paris Hilton in the camp horror - was forced to evacuate after a planned fire spread out of control on the Queensland, Australia set.

He says, "There was a fire during one of the scenes in House Of Wax.

"I was really close to the flames, so I had to flee the set halfway through a take.

"Everyone was OK, but we lost the stage and all our equipment."
