Fire destroys country singer Trace Adkins' home

NASHVILLE, Tenn (Reuters) - Country music star Trace Adkins' home in a Nashville suburb was destroyed by fire on Saturday, but no injuries were reported, a spokeswoman said.

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

Adkins was flying to Alaska for a concert 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.

Their daughters and a sitter quickly escaped the burning house; Rhonda Adkins was not home at the time.
