Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal Escape Fiery Death in Marin, Not Hell

20061227__mankasfire_Viewer.jpg

Jake Gyllenhaal and sister Maggie were among the guests forced to stand around in their jammies when their Marin hotel, Manka’s Inverness Lodge, burned down early Wednesday morning. From the Marin Independent Journal:

None of the actors were available for comment. But Daniel DeLong, a co-chef/owner with his partner, Margaret Grad}, said they were helpful and concerned about the historic lodge. “Jake was helping me pull things out of the fire,” DeLong said.

FBLA loves brave movie stars, even though the gentle Jake was the last person we’d think of for an action role.
