Among the tens of thousands whose homes lie in the path of the two-day blaze which has been incinerating Southern California, Jane Seymour is worrying about the fate of her own house. "My husband [ James Keach] only just this [Monday] morning evacuated the children," she told TVGuide.com from a hotel, "but he insiated on staying. He said the winds were turning in our direction, so he was going to protect the house." But how? "The last time there was a fire [in October 2003], James actually fought it and saved the bluff using [swimming pool pumps and hoses] that I had laughed at when he installed it. Since then, he has put in even more equipment. I just hope that if he does fight this crazy thing, he'll find another large male to help him with the hose."

Of course, Seymour's new anxiety comes just weeks after she lost her mother and as she continues with the Dancing with the Stars competition. "As they say, 'the show must go on,'" she sighs. "But I'm wondering how many challenges I need each week. I thought the dancing was enough!" - With reporting by Damian Holbrook
