Trace Adkins Brentwood, Tennessee home burned 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 they made it out safely and gathered around a tree outside the home, according to the fire plan the family had in place.
However, not everyone made it out without a scratch.
It's reported that a neighbor rushed over to help the family dog, who bit him out of fright. He is at the hospital recovering. The neighbor, that is. The dog is fine.
Neither Trace nor his wife Rhonda Adkins was home at the time of the fire. Trace was on his way to Alaska. Rhonda was in Atlanta and had just arrived back in Tennessee about 10 minutes after the fire started.
Brentwood Fire Chief Brian Goss says the fire may have started in the garage, but the exact cause of the blaze is not known. He also says the fire crews will be there through most of the night because the fire reached the attic and made it harder to contain.
Trace did have many of his awards and special memoribilia in the home. Restoration specialists were allowed inside the home to save what they could after the fire was brought under control.
