Former Seahawks Star Earl Thomas’ House Goes Up In Flames And The Mystery Isn’t Solved Yet

The Texas home of former Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas burned down on Thursday after reportedly being struck by lightning in what officials say is a "total loss," according to multiple reports. 

About the incident

Thomas, who last played with the Baltimore Ravens in 2019, was home with two family members at his residence in Orange, Texas, when he heard a "popping sound" and saw smoke in the house early Thursday evening, Orange Fire Department Deputy Chief Payton Smith told FOX4 Beaumont.

What was the cause of fire?

No cause has been confirmed, but fire officials are reportedly not ruling out the possibility of lightning striking the house.
