Tammy Wynette Home Destroyed
A $1.45 million mansion that once belonged to Tammy Wynette has burned to the ground. Nashville's WTVF reports that the home in Hendersonville, Tenn. caught fire Sunday evening. Its current owners were not home, and by the time firefighters were called, about 90% of the house was already destroyed.
Wynette lived in the mansion in the early '80s. It was originally built for Roy Orbison in 1963. Sadly, this was the third house once belonging to the late rock legend that has caught fire. Orbison's first house fire claimed the lives of two of his sons. The second was the lakeside home that later belonged to Johnny Cash, who bought the lot from Orbison. That home was destroyed by fire in 2007.
Fire investigators have yet to determine the cause of Sunday's blaze. Luckily, no one was injured.
