LOS ANGELES (AP) — A fire gutted the home of actress Drew Barrymore and her comedian fiance Tom Green.

Both escaped injury. They were awakened early Sunday by their dog in time to escape the blaze.

``We're great,'' Barrymore, a star of ``Charlie's Angels,'' told reporters at the scene.

``Other than the fact that the home burned down,'' Green added.

Their dog, Flossie, woke them up around 3:30 a.m. when she barked and ``literally banged on their bedroom door,'' said Eddie Michaels, Barrymore's spokesman.

It took firefighters about an hour to douse the flames.

Firefighters estimated damage at $700,000 in the two-story, 3,500-square-foot home north of Beverly Hills.

Michaels, however, said: ``The house is totaled.''

The cause of the blaze was under investigation.
