Fire Breaks Out At Carrie Underwood’s Tennessee Home

Carrie Underwood and her family narrowly escaped turning their Sunday night into an impromptu barbecue when a fire decided to crash the party at their Tennessee home.

It all went down on June 16th, around the not-so-typical bedtime of 9:40pm, when several heroic fire crews were called to the 41-year-old country music superstar’s house in Williamson County. The garage was having a rather heated disagreement with some flames, leading to what WKRN News 2 dramatically dubbed a “fully-involved fire.” Clearly, the garage didn’t get the memo that fire is supposed to stay in the fireplace.

Thankfully, the firefighters had a secret weapon: a 10,000-gallon water tank already chilling on the property, ready to rain on the fire’s parade. Talk about being prepared! They managed to contain the blaze faster than a celebrity marriage rumor can spread.

Carrie’s spokesperson, who probably had to triple-check this wasn’t a prank, confirmed that everyone—including Carrie, her hubby Mike Fisher, their two sons, 9-year-old Michael and 5-year-old Jacob, and all their furry friends—were safe and sound. “There was a fire on the property on Sunday night, which was quickly contained,” the spokesperson told People. “There was no fire damage to the primary residence, and the family and their pets were unharmed.” In other words, the house is still standing and the goldfish can keep swimming.

The Williamson County Fire/Rescue couldn’t resist a bit of Facebook fame and posted their own play-by-play of the fiery fiasco. “At 9:42, Station 21 was dispatched to a fire alarm in their district. Almost immediately, the call was upgraded to a structure fire,” their statement read. Translation: “We thought it was just a toaster mishap but nope, it was the real deal.”

They continued, “Crews from all eight of our stations responded. Fairview fire provided a tanker and crew as well. Upon arrival, 1401 found flames coming from the garage. Crews were able to knock down the fire quickly to prevent spread into the house.” Basically, it was all hands on deck, and they squashed that fire like it was a pesky mosquito.

The fire squad added, “Firefighters continue to put out hotspots to prevent further spread. The cause of the fire is under investigation. There are no injuries at this time.” So, the mystery of the flaming garage continues, but at least everyone is okay and no one had to test out their marshmallow roasting skills.

As for Mike’s Father’s Day plans? Well, it’s a safe bet that the “grill master” had to put his apron away, at least for this weekend.
