Fire destroys Trace Adkins home near Nashville

Country music star Trace Adkins' home in a Nashville suburb was destroyed by fire on Saturday, but no injuries were reported, a spokesperson for the singer said.

"The home Trace Adkins shares with his family has been lost in a fire that began early Saturday evening," the spokesperson said. "Thankfully, Mr. Adkins, his wife Rhonda and their three daughters are unharmed."

Adkins was flying to Alaska for a concert next week when the fire consumed his house in Brentwood near Nashville. When he arrived in Alaska, he learned of the fire and immediately boarded a flight back to Tennessee.

The fire spread rapidly but was quickly contained and did not spread to other homes, the spokesperson said.

Rhonda Adkins was not home when the fire broke out. Their daughters who were home and a sitter quickly escaped the house.

The full Brentwood Fire Department was sent to the scene and the department was expected to remain there well into the night, a fire dispatcher said.
