Earl Thomas’ Texas home was engulfed in flames on Thursday after officials suspect that it was struck by lighting.
Local media captured images of the home in the South Texas city of Orange near the Louisiana border:
Orange Fire Department Deputy Chief Payton Smith told reporters that officials believe that lightning sparked the fire. Firefighters told Fox 4 that Thomas was home when the blaze started but that he escaped unharmed. No injuries reported. Per Fox 4, Smith said that firefighters were having trouble extinguishing the fire because of the vegetation on the property.
Here’s a video recorded by a neighbor:
Back in April, he made it clear that he wanted to resume his NFL career after sitting out the past two seasons.
