The fire erupted during filming of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, the sequel to the 2012 movie Jack Reacher, based on the Lee Child novels.

Editors at U.K. newspaper Daily Mirror report the blaze started on the Louisiana film set and destroyed the wardrobe trailer within seconds.

Photos of the scene show flames billowing from the trailer, and it was claimed that Tom - who was unharmed - was just yards away from the incident while taking a break from filming.

Firefighters were called to the scene, and the blaze was put out.

A representative for Tom Cruise has yet to comment on the report.
