HELENA, Mont. (AP) – Christopher Lloyd plans to rebuild on the Southern California site where wildfire destroyed his house last fall.

Lloyd’s $11 million house was among hundreds lost in the fires that swept the state. He spoke about the home while in Montana promoting a new movie, “Call of the Wild 3D.”

Lloyd says the fires were an “awesome” experience and left the neighborhood looking like a war zone.

The actor, who played the scientist sidekick to Michael J. Fox’s character in the “Back to the Future” movies, says he had been preparing to sell the house so most of his belongings were in storage. Still, he says he lost some pictures, family memorabilia and other personal items.

He says the rebuilt property will be better built to cope with wildfire.
