Weather or a faulty power strip may be to blame for a fire that destroyed one building and damaged others at Loretta Lynn‘s home on Thursday night (Feb. 21). Firefighters arrived to Hurricane Mills at 7:30PM to put out the blaze. Lynn’s management later tweeted to tell fans she was safe.

“Thank you everyone for your concern. There was a small isolated fire within our cook shack this evening. Everyone is alright. – Team LL,” the tweet reads.

WTVF-TV in Nashville reports that a concession stand at the popular tourist destination was leveled and a storage building and eating area near the Motocross track were damaged. The singer’s residence was not in danger at any point. Firefighters and emergency response teams were able to leave the scene by 10PM.

It’s not clear if Lynn was home at the time. Her official website doesn’t list tour dates until March 22. She was just announced in the lineup for Keith Urban‘s We’re All for the Hall Benefit in Nashville on April 16. Lynn’s 6,000 square foot ranch is currently closed to tourists for the winter season, but is scheduled to reopen on March 1.

This is the second time in recent weeks the legend’s home has been damaged by a freak occurrence. A storm in late January resulted in broken windows, leaking roofs and down trees across her property. “All I remember was how loud the wind was getting,” Lynn says at her website. “The whole ranch looks like a warzone.”
