Brentwood, Tenn., firefighters were called to the home of Trace Adkins around 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon (June 4) . Firefighters are calling the home a "total loss."
Trace's three youngest daughters and their nanny were home at the time of the fire, but all occupants made it out safely and gathered around a tree outside the home, according to the fire plan the family had in place.
Neither Trace nor his wife, Rhonda, were home at the time of the fire, but Rhonda was called and told of the fire, according to Nashville's WSMV-TV.
Trace is currently en route to Alaska and did not know of the fire as of 6 p.m. CT Saturday evening. “He’s gonna freak. He’s probably gonna think I’m dead,” Rhonda told The Tennessean. Rhonda was in Atlanta until this afternoon and arrived home at 3:45 p.m., about 10 minutes after the fire started, she said.
Brentwood fire chief Brian Goss told WSMV that the fire may have started in the garage, but the exact cause of the blaze is not known.
