Devastating news for one of Big Brother 12‘s contestants.Â Multiple news sources are reporting that a fire tore through Britney Haynes‘ home early this morning in Little Rock, Arkansas, causing $50,000 in damage.
According to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Britney’s fiance, Nick Grisham, was home at the time of the fire, but safely escaped.Â He was also able to rescue both of their dogs.Â Authorities tell the newspaper the flames likely spread to the home after a backyard grill ignited grass and a nearby trash can.Â Foul play is not suspected.Â By 1:30 a.m. when firefighters arrived on the scene, the house was fully involved.
Producers of Big Brother have been notified of the incident, but they have agreed, per Nick’s wishes, to not reveal the news to Britney yet.Â Nick will be at the live finale tonight when Britney casts her vote for a winner — reports indicate he didn’t think she needed to know about the fire until after the show wrapped up.
Britney will be among the rest of the jury when they cast their ballots live for the winner of Big Brother 12.Â It all comes in the two-hour finale when Hayden, Lane or Enzo will be crowned the champion and awarded $500,000.
