- Stephan Bonnar has lost his Nevada home after it got burned by a devastating fire
- The cause of the fire is still yet to be determined but investigation is underway
After years of being out of the picture, Stephan Bonnar finally made the headlines. However, it wasn’t about combat sports but an unfortunate event in the UFC legend’s life. News broke earlier this week that Bonnar’s home was ruined by fire.
Reports stated that a fire outbreak in Bonnar’s Henderson, Nevada home took place on Monday afternoon. Fortunately, there were no reported injuries and casualties but according to the 44-year-old’s wife, Andrea Bonnar, the flames completely destroyed “everything.”
“Lost everything, house is done,” Bonnar told MMA Junkie.
Cause of fire still unknown
When Henderson Fire Department arrived at Bonnar’s place, responders said they were able to safely displace “two adults, one child and four dogs” from the burning house.
The primary cause of the fire outbreak is still unknown but Henderson Fire Dept. is currently teaming-up with Clark County Fire Department in the investigation.
“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.”
Bonnar last fought professionally in 2014 at Bellator 131 against fellow UFC legend Tito Ortiz. He was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2013 and is best known for his Ultimate Fighter Season 1 Finale brawl versus Forrest Griffin.
