TRACE ADKINS' house in suburban Nashville burned to the ground Saturday afternoon.  Although it was completely destroyed, fortunately, no one was injured.

 --Trace was in Alaska for a couple of tour dates and a fishing trip.  His wife Rhonda was running errands when she got a call about the fire.  She saw the smoke and immediately headed home.

  --Trace's three daughters and a friend were actually IN the house with a nanny when they heard an explosion in the garage.  The nanny checked it out and saw flames so she herded everyone out. 

  --But they did NOT go running about in chaos, they actually followed an emergency plan the family had put into place.  It was based on a safety seminar the local fire department gave at the kids' school about what to do in an emergency.

  --As for why the destruction was so overwhelming, a fire department spokesman blamed the attic.  Once a fire gets there it spreads super fast . . . plus, it's one of the hardest areas for the studly fire crew to access.

  (--Trace's wife Rhonda and his daughter Brianna were interviewed by Nashville's WSMV-TV.
