Heidi Fleiss' Nevada home was ravaged by fire on Thanksgiving Day.

The Celebrity Big Brother contestant and former madam told US news channel KWU-TV that she was at the house in Pahrump, west of Last Vegas, when the fire broke out, but was unharmed.

KVVU-TV reports the fire started in a chimney that lacked a "spark arrestor," a device that prevents sparks from escaping the fireplace.

It's unclear how damaged the house is, but a video released by celebrity website TMZ shows flames flowing from the roof.

Heidi once ran a high-priced Los Angeles prostitution ring providing models-turned-prostitutes to wealthy clients. She moved to Pahrump in late 2005, several years after serving 21 months in a California prison for money laundering and tax evasion.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
