Forget portraying Lance Armstrong on the big screen.

Perhaps Jake Gyllenhaal should star as as firefighter in his next movie instead.

The Oscar-nominated actor played such a role quite effectively Wednesday after he and his sister, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal were forced from their beds due to an early morning fire at Manka's Inverness Lodge in the San Francisco Bay area of California.

After all, Jake does have a lot of free time now that he isn't having crazy sex with Kirsten Dunst anymore.

According to the Marin Independent Journal, the Gyllenhaals - who frequently vacation at the inn - were among the dozen or so guests that fled into the wind and rain at close to 3 a.m.

"Jake was helping me pull things out of the fire," chef and co-owner Daniel DeLong told the Journal, adding that the actors were helpful and concerned about the historic lodge.

The fire reportedly started after a tree crashed into the back of the inn. Fortunately, Peter Sarsgaard was not injured in the accident.
