Big Brother 12: Britney & Fiance Nick's Home Burned

As I woke up this morning and checked twitter, I came upon this tragic news from @BigBrotherLeak:
"Just received awful news. Britney & her fiance Nick's home burned down last night. Everyone is okay! Please keep them in your thoughts. #BB12"

Britney's fiance Nick posted the following on Jokers:

I had to go back in a few times to get the dogs because I could not find them due to the smoke. The smoke detector did not go off so I am lucky to have made it out. About 90% of our belongings are ruined due to fire, smoke, and water. Please keep us in your prayers. God bless

Jokerette confirms. Here is the direct link to the thread, and here is the link to the full report from Nick.

While we will not know for certain until tonight, James Rhine of Big Brother 6 and AllStars posts on his twitter that he believes Britney will be told, since she is in sequester.

Offering further confirmation, here is an excerpt from a local Source:
Nick Grisham called the producers to let them know about the fire, Laura Grisham said.

"He told them what happened and they agreed they wouldn't say anything to Britney," Laura Grisham said. "She can't do anything. The final show is tonight and it's live. There's no sense in her knowing."

Nick Grisham went back inside to rescue the couple's two dogs and family members have been able to salvage some possessions, Laura Grisham said. She said her son will fly to Los Angeles later Wednesday to meet Haynes after the show.

He's concerned about how Haynes will react to the news, Laura Grisham said.

"He hasn't seen her in three months and he's afraid she's going to be mad," Laura Grisham said. "I said 'you don't understand son, you are lucky to be alive, especially after going back in two more times to get the dogs out.'"

The blaze was started by a small grill in the backyard that ignited the grass, spreading to a trash can and then the house, investigators said. Laura Grisham said her son was grilling and that the fire started despite his dousing the coals in water.

The house was fully involved when crews arrived about 1:30 a.m., said Little Rock Fire Department Capt. Randy Hickmon. It took about an hour-and-a-half to get the fire under control.

The single-story, blue structure is still standing with a large burned area at its rear, where the windows are boarded up and a tarp covers part of the roof and an adjacent wall. Burn and heat marks are visible on other parts of the structure.

Preliminary total damage is estimated at $50,000.

Our prayers go out to Nick and Britney. Thank God every living creature was spared in the fire.

I pray that Britney wins the 25k! I know I voted like crazy for her. What an angel Nick is, to ensure their animals did not perish. God Bless him!

OMG! This is horrible news. I am glad everyone is okay!! I know he just moved them into their new home while she was in the house. So sad.

I am not sure what telling her is going to do. Everyone is okay and I would think it would be better for Nick to tell her so she can see that he is okay. That's a tough call.

I really dislike britney, but i hope she is allowed to see her fiance and pets. I lost my house two years ago b/c of a fire and it still haunts me. watching my house burn down and knowing my animals were inside while trying to get my disabled neighbor out hurts so much to this day. it's really something you can't imagine until it happens to you. hopefully everyone and all her pets are ok and she can get them into a new place with her BB money

i cant imagine how she'd feel not being able to go home. i havent liked her at all this season, but no one deserves to lose everything this way. poor girl. I just voted for them, well her for AC :P never thought Id do that. hopefully she realizes what's important, i think she will since she shut lane down all season, and see's how lucky she is to not have lost her family/pets. there is no worse feeling in the world then watching your house burn with precious life trapped inside.

Hey everyone. Terrible news about Britney, I'm sorry to hear it.

Just popping in to say thanks to Caro, GenieSea and Lessa for another amazing season. BB would be nothing without this site!!!

Thank you ladies for all the hard work and dedication you put into this site. You make my summers so much more intriguing!!

Sorry I was a fairly invisible follower this summer- things got hectic and it was sometimes hard to keep up! (Thank you, DVR.) But I've been lurking in the shadows and your efforts don't go unnoticed.

Hopefully will see you all tonight, but if not, we'll always have next summer!

Thanks again! xoxo

How sad! I am so sorry to "read" this! I can't imagine her having to hear this news without being with Nick to comfort her. I am glad to hear that everyone is okay!

This is so weird to hear this, I was just thinking about "what if" Would I have time to grab what I could?

I hope they haven't told her while in sequester... I can't imagine getting that kind of news and not being able to reach out to ANYONE.

Britney made me laugh more than anyone this season and we've had some REALLY funny hamsters this year... so she gets major props for that.

We are all "catty" at times. At the beginning I gasped at some of the things that came out of her mouth, however... she really grew on me.

I wouldn't wish this kind of tragedy on ANYONE... even *gags* Jesse.

I voted for Brit, many times, as my fave HG. Now I really hope she gets it... she's going to need it.

Sooooo SAD! =(

Mod1 in superpass, just told us that the report about Britney is a fake report. He told us to check on CNN news. The house in question was in Tennessee, but not in Huntington, where Britney lives.

Anyone hear this too? Just wondering!

Oh no!! That's a terrible tragedy. I'm so relieved Nick and the pups are ok, but what a horrible thing to have happen. My heart goes out to Britney and Nick!!

Oh my heart is breaking for Britney and Nick this morning hearing the bad news about their house. Fortunately Nick saved their dogs!

I am glad now that I divided my votes up and gave half to Britney for the $25K. I hope she gets it now.

Such sad news, but could have been worse if anyone had been hurt in the fire!

Thanks for being on top of it Carolyn and reporting to us!

Here is the only local news story about a home burning in her area, still not sure if it is their home.


I hope it isn't true, but if it is....it's so sad for her!

Nick has told CBS not to tell Brit.
He is gonna fly out today to tell her after the show.

Thanks for confirming! I will alert mod1 from superpass that he was totally mistaken!

Thanks again!

Morning on this Final Day of BB12!! I can't believe that this is it!! Every morning I have spent here reading the Late Night and Morning Report before doing my normal duties here at work (heheh)

I was sadden this morning when I read Carolyn tweet about Brit and Nick's home. Brit has been my favorite since week 2 and I wont tell you how many times I voted for her on AC! My thoughts and prayers are with her and Nick and I just thankful that everyone is safe!

Carolyn how is your mom? My mom is at home!!

Have a wonderful day!

My heart goes out to Britney. She was so anxious to go home and now this.
Thankfully Nick and the dogs are safe and hopefully she had insurance.
I disliked her cattiness but did admire her game play and really think that she did deserve to be in the final 2.
Carolyn how is mom doing today?

I'm confused - why would she be mad? Did he somehow cause the fire?

I'm confused - why would she be mad? Unless he somehow caused the fire, I would think the normal reaction for most people would be relief that no one was hurt?

I hope this is true as in it's NOT a hoax. A fire is tragic and while I've never been in one, I've heard horrific and heartbreaking stories from others.

Even my mother, when she was a child and had nothing, had to go through a total loss. Thankfully no family members were injured.

Have we heard Britney ever say anything about moving to Little Rock. That's quite a distance from her hometown. I thought she and Nick had just bought a house in their hometown.

As for voting for Britney as AFP, I didn't and this wouldn't change my vote. I'm glad the votes are over so there are no sympathy votes even though I expect her to win it anyway. She wasn't my choice.

This is harsh and may keep my comment from getting published but I have to voice what I think.

We have talked a lot about karma here when it suits our feelings about things in the house. Britney's nastiness was a part of the house and karma knows no bounds.

Sorry... I may come off cruel.

But Karma is a bitch and eventually it gets you.

I am glad all living beings are safe and OK.

GaYToR, Britney and Nick lived about 3 hours away from Britney's mom. She moved to be closer to him and they recently rented a house I guess to "officially" move in together. While in the process, she was called for BB. She wasn't even able to help tie up loose ends.

One night on the feeds she mentioned that if Nick was listening, he needed to get renters insurance. I sure hope he did. That will help with their contents.

Word is their smoke detector's weren't working so that blame will lie with the owner of the house and usually you need to show proof that renter's insurance was purchased before moving in.

I also know that Nick moved into the house during BB and mentioned in an interview that he moved all of Britney's stuff in as well.

I am glad he is going to tell her in person. I think that is best. I do not think she will be mad or upset with him at all. Unless he is found at fault. I know a grill was mentioned, but geez! accidents happen.

If she wins AC, she will have her stipend, her 10K from the luxury comp. and the 25K.

To Whom it May Concern,

If you do not see your comment published. It's not personal. It's just that I don't have time today to spend fending off people - whose comments I also wont be able to publish, because they will be attacking you - for the statement.

As grammatically awful as that sentence is, I hope it's clear.

"We have talked a lot about karma here when it suits our feelings about things in the house. Britney's nastiness was a part of the house and karma knows no bounds." I love you Gaytor but this is just a game and no one in that house or any other BB house past has always been 100% wonderful. I have watched all of the feeds and always think the season I'm watching has the most hated HG. JMHO Karma has no place here. This probably won't get published and I mean no disrespect but the hatred for this girl is just too much.
