Safety Tips Save Trace Adkins' Kids From Home Fire
By Raphael Chestang
Trace Adkins' home was deemed a "total loss" after fire overtook it on Saturday, but his children, who were home at the time, were saved.
According to CNN, Trace and Rhonda Adkins' three daughters were taught fire safety by firefighters from Brentwood, Tennessee, where the family lives, when the firefighters came to the children's school earlier this year.
"They ran to their safe place like we practiced, in the front yard at a big tree," Rhonda told the news organization. "And it worked. You know, fire safety is so important, and today we used it."
The fire reportedly spread from the garage to the attic of the large home. The country singer posted a statement on his website, expressing "his gratitude for the immediate response of the Brentwood Fire Department and is humbled by the outpouring of concern from friends and fans."
