Update: Miami Dolphins Star Tyreek Hill’s Massive Home Fire Started By Child Playing w/ Lighter

Update: (Jan 4, 2024): We now know how the fire started at Tyreek Hill’s Florida mansion.

According to new reports, the fire at the $6.9 million property was caused by a child playing with a lighter. It was speculated that the incident began somewhere upstairs, where most of the bedrooms are said to be located, as firefighters seemed to pay close attention to that area while putting out the flames.

A spokesperson for the Davie Fire Department in Florida confirmed the theory, sharing that investigators believe a minor initiated the “accidental” blaze inside a bedroom while playing with a lighter.

At this time, the amount of damage caused to the home is unknown.

Aerial footage showed thick grey smoke coming from the property as firefighters cut a hole in the roof and showered the home in water to battle the blaze. There were people reportedly inside when the fire started around 2 p.m., however, everyone was thankfully able to exit the residence with no injuries.
