The Encinitas, Calif. duplex fire was reported late on Thursday, starting in the garages of the two-story duplex then spreading to the rest of the residence, according to the local fire chief.
Power lines were down in front of the building, hampering firefighters who tried to battle the blaze.
Allin, age 75, was the only person in the duplex. He was treated for a minor injury at the scene.
Besides Enter the Dragon, Allin is known for 1980’s Flash Gordon and the 1974 film Truck Turner.
