University of Alabama alum, and current Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain’s $1.5 Million home on Lake Tuscaloosa burnt to the ground last night in a disturbingly powerful fire.
The 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 7,500-square-foot home was recently placed on the market with a price tag of $1.5 million, but last night police and fire fighters were called to the home as it was engulfed in flames and burnt to the ground.
Many reporters were on hand uploading photos of the catastrophe to Twitter, as reporters tend to do these days…
ESPN Dallas is reporting that officials are suspicious regarding the circumstances of the fire, as eye witnesses claim to have seen a car speeding away from the fire:
Alabama authorities have suspicions about a fire that gutted a mansion owned by Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain.
Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Lt. Andy Norris says a witness reported seeing a car speeding away from the scene of the blaze Monday night.
Norris says the vehicle could be a clue. He says it’s suspicious anytime a vacant, high-priced home burns down.
Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the blaze.
No one was home and no one was hurt. But authorities say the house is likely a total loss.
