Carrie Underwood's family is safe after house fire in Tennessee

Shrewd planning may have saved the rural home of country music superstar Carrie Underwood after the garage of her Pinewood Road home caught fire outside of Nashville on Sunday night.

Dinah Wade, a spokesperson with Williamson County Fire and Rescue, told The Tennessean, which is part of the USA TODAY network, that a 10,000-gallon water tank installed at the family's home was used by fire crews to extinguish the blaze. Crews say the fire began around 9:42 p.m.

Wade said an off-road UTV caught fire and spread to the singer's garage and added that four people and three pets inside the home were able to escape without injuries.

"One of the pets would not leave the homeowner's side," Wade said.

When crews arrived at the scene, according to Wade, flames were coming from the garage.

A spokesman for Underwood confirmed the Sunday fire, noting that the blaze was quickly contained. There was no fire damage to the primary residence, spokesman Brad Cafarelli also said, though Wade said an odor of smoke could be smelled inside.

It took several hours to put out the blaze as pockets of fire were detected inside the wall. Wade said there is no cost estimate for the damages at this time.

According to property records, the home was sold for $5.5 million in 2008. It was appraised at a little more than $11 million in 2024, records show.
