Tyreek Hill Rushes Home as Fire Engulfs Mansion, Family SafeMiami Dolphins Wide Receiver Tyreek Hill rushed home from practice on Wednesday as a fire broke out at his residence. The 29-year-old received assurance of his family’s safety before leaving the training facility, according to NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe.

The Davie Fire Rescue Department responded to the urgent situation, describing it as a significant residential structure fire, requiring units from Davie, Southwest Ranches, and Broward Sheriff’s Office. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, and an investigation into the fire’s cause is underway.

The Dolphins practice at the Baptist Health Training Complex, approximately 12 miles from Hill’s home. Emergency responders battled the fire for over 30 minutes before Hill, wearing a walking boot due to an ankle injury, arrived around 3 p.m. EST.

Live-streamed footage by WSVN 7 News showed Hill’s wife, Keeta Vaccaro, and two children waiting outside as firefighters searched for hotspots. Aerial broadcasts revealed smoke emerging from a hole in the roof.

Hill’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, later addressed reporters, stating that the fire damage was limited to one room, expressing gratitude on behalf of the family.

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, unaware of the incident during practice, commented on the situation, emphasizing the importance of Hill’s family’s safety. Tagovailoa expressed empathy, acknowledging the difficulties Hill may be facing and highlighting the replaceable nature of material possessions.

Hill, who joined the Dolphins in March 2022 through a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs, had purchased the mansion for $6.9 million after signing a lucrative contract extension, making him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL based on average annual value.
