Fire Devours the Home of Trace Adkins [Pictures]

On June 4, 2011, Trace Adkins‘ home in Brentwood, Tenn., was completely destroyed by a devastating fire, as you can see from these pictures taken at the scene. Neither Adkins or his wife Rhonda were home at the time, but the country singer’s three daughters were at the house with a babysitter. The girls and their nanny were able to escape the blaze (an electrical fire that started in Adkins’ garage) unharmed, thanks to the fire drills the girls have practiced at home and in school.

Adkins was out on the road when the fire began, and according to his wife Rhonda, fellow country singer Blake Shelton informed him of the inferno. “Blake Shelton, I don’t even know if he knows it, but Blake was the one that told him the house burned down,” Rhonda said. “Because when Trace landed, that was the first message he got: ‘Trace, I can see into your house! What’s going on?’”

A statement was posted to Adkins’ official website, reading, “Trace wishes to express his gratitude for the immediate response of the Brentwood Fire Department and is humbled by the outpouring of concern from friends and fans.” Rhonda Adkins also told reporters, “We all need to wake up. We all need to slow down, and we all need to practice fire safety. Because we all live too fast, and you just never know. In an instant, your whole world could be changed.”
