Mark Wahlberg has reportedly fled from a fire on the set of Transformers 4.

The Ted actor escaped a blaze in a house he was filming in unhurt, according to The Sun.

He was apparently with director Michael Bay in the house on set in Texas when they smelled smoke and a member of the crew found the attic in flames.

Mark is said to have helped grab equipment before fleeing the weatherboard house with the rest of the cast and crew.

A crew member reportedly told KVUE news they had been filming a controlled explosion when the fire happened, with one person not working on the film apparently taken to hospital.

The fire department said that the fire had been ruled as accidental and the house had been released back to the homeowner.

Mark plays a soldier in Transformers 4 whose daughter is dating the main character, played by Irish actor Jack Reynor.

Jack replaced Shia LaBeouf after three films in the franchise.
