NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice season one finalist and Country music superstar, Trace Adkins lost his Tennessee home yesterday to a fire. Luckily, Trace’s three daughters made it out thanks to fire safety tips they learned and practiced. Keep reading for more details!
Celebrity Apprentice contestant, Trace Adkins was out of town when a fire broke out in his Tennessee home yesterday but his three daughters and their nanny were in the home. The fire which appeared to have started in the garage and quickly caught the house has completely devoured the home and all the family’s belongings, but luckily Trace’s three young daughters along with their nanny made it out of the home without being harmed.
Trace’s wife, Rhonda Adkins told CNN that she was driving a block away when her neighbor called and told her that her home was in flames, leaving her terrified. When Rhonda arrived home she found her children on the front lawn, unharmed and she went on to add that “they ran to their safe place like we practiced, in the front yard at a big tree. And it worked. You know, fire safety is so important, and today we used it.”
Despite the fact that she lost everything in the fire, and admitted that she is sad all of her wedding photos and memories are now gone, Rhonda is extremely thankful that her girls got out okay and expressed how important fire safety is and that we should all practice it.
Trace was on a plane at the time of the fire, but immediately took a return flight home once he landed. A spokesman for Trace Adkins told CNN “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.” We wish the Adkins family the best in rebuilding and thank goodness for their safety. We should all definitely take a lesson from this and teach our children the importance of fire safety – because you never really know!
