Stephan Bonnar’s home in Henderson, Nev., was destroyed in a fire earlier this week.
On Monday afternoon, a 2-alarm fire blazed the house, leaving the UFC Hall of Famer and his family displaced. MMA Junkie confirmed the news with Bonnar following an initial report from TMZ. Although the house was destroyed in the flames, there were no injuries reported at the time of the incident.
“Lost everything, house is done,” Bonnar told MMA Junkie in a brief statement.
The Henderson Fire Department responded to the call for a residential fire and was able to extinguish the flames with the assistance of the Clark County Fire Department. It took the responders over an hour to extinguish the flames.
“At 2:40 pm today, we responded to a residential fire near Galleria and Cadence Vista Dr. Our crews confirmed smoke and flames were visible on the exterior of the home and established a defensive fire attack,” the Henderson Fire Department shared in a public statement. “Due to the high winds, condition of the fire, and its proximity to neighboring homes, the call was upgraded to a 2-alarm fire.
“With assistance from Clark County Fire Department, we had the fire knocked down at 3:48 p.m. No transports or injuries were reported. Two adults, one child, and four dogs were displaced. Red Cross has made its services available to the residents. At this time, the cause of the fire is under investigation.”
A GoFundMe has been set up to assist the Bonnar family with expenses following the devastating fire to their home. Fellow UFC legend Don Frye and MMA comedian Adam Hunter are among those who have already donated to the goal of $10,000.
Bonnar was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2013 for his classic battle with Forest Griffin at the inaugural season finale of The Ultimate Fighter.
