Loretta Lynn’s Home Damaged by Fire

A small fire broke out at Loretta Lynn’s residence in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., on Tuesday (2/25)  morning.

It is not known if Loretta was home when the fire started but, Emergency Management officials say everyone inside the house was able to get out safely.

According to Nashville television station WTVF, the fire started in the building where Lynn lives, not the antebellum mansion on the same property where she and her husband raised their family. That building has been turned into a tourist attraction.  Some reports say the cause of the fire was a candle that caught a chair on fire that was extinguished quickly.

Last year, another fire destroyed the cook shack on Loretta’s property.
