Burglars looted Halle Berry’s LA mansion after she fled the property when it was threatened by wildfires.
The actress returned home to find valuables worth tens of thousands of pounds missing.
A neighbour said Halle, 52 – who ironically starred in the 2007 hit film Things We Lost in the Fire – was at first “deeply relieved” to discover her house was unscathed by the flames.
But he added: “As soon as she walked through her front door, she realised something was terribly wrong. The place was a mess and she noticed a hallway painting was missing.”
A search by the Monster’s Ball star revealed thieves had got away with art and jewellery.
Police believe they fled by boat from the £6.3million beachfront mansion in Malibu as firefighters battled the inferno nearby.
Halle and her two children were among 300,000 residents ordered to evacuate as fire devastated the area. It killed three people and destroyed almost 97,000 acres, including the homes of Scottish actor Gerard Butler, 49, and singers Miley Cyrus, 26, and Robin Thicke, 41.
Sources close to Halle believe she may sell the house she shares with daughter Nahla, 10, and son Maleo, five, because of the ordeal. One said: “It was terrifying enough having to flee the fire.
“Even though she has a security staff that shadows her and the kids wherever they go, she no longer feels safe there.”
Some celebrities issued online warnings to would-be thieves when they fled the Woolsey fire, which raged for two weeks in November.
Pop star Pink’s husband Carey Hart posted photos showing armed men and a sign that read: “Looters will be shot.”
Meanwhile, Rihanna is selling her Hollywood Hills home after being hit by robbers a second time in seven months.
Police arrested four people, thought to be in a gang that targeted celebs including hip-hop star Nicki Minaj and country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.
Diamonds singer Rihanna, 30, wants £5.9million for her house – well below the estimated value of £6.6million.
