Pierce Brosnan sued for carelessly starting fire

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

'James Bond' star Pierce Brosnan is being sued by an company for carelessly starting a fire, an incident which took place in 2015.

The fire had occurred in the actor's Malibu mansion and ended up spreading to his neighbour Alexander Haagen's house, partly burning his home.

The incident could have been avoided had Brosnan properly disposed off the rags that were susceptible to spontaneous combustion.

According to TMZ, Haagen got paid for the damage by his agency, but in a turnaround, the same company has gone after the "GoldenEye" star, demanding damage claims.

Brosnan's house was massively damaged in the fire.
