Johnny Depp's family estate in the St Tropez was feared to be among those ravaged by flames in the south of France forest fires yesterday (29JUL03).

The Pirates Of The Caribbean: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL star and actress wife Vanessa Paradis, as well as their two young children LILY-ROSE and JACK, inhabit a sumptuous villa in the exclusive area of Plan de la Tour - but the forest surrounding the home has been destroyed by the rampant inferno.

Other stars with homes in the area include singer George Michael and veteran actress Brigitte Bardot.

Police fear the 30 forest fires in the area yesterday were started by "fire terrorists".
