Jimmy Dean's House Overcooked in Blaze

4/21/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A fire consumed the Virginia home of sausage connoisseur and sometime country singer Jimmy Dean last night -- but fear not ... everyone escaped and Jimmy was able to save his 1962 Grammy from perishing in the blaze.

Jimmy Dean

The Henrico County Fire Department tells us the blaze -- which they believe to be accidental -- started in the basement of Jimmy's Virgina home last night, causing major damage. Although Jimmy and his wife were unharmed, three firefighters were injured while trying to contain the flames, according to WWBT.

We're told Jimmy saved as much stuff from the burning building as he could -- including the Grammy he won for "Big Bad John" back in the 60's.

My sympathy is extended to Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Dean on the loss of their home. Both of you are safe and that is what is important. My deepest concerns go out to the brave firefighters and their families at this time. I feel your pain and pray for your speedy recovery. You are indeed the hero(s) and heroine(s) deserving of praise and respect!

Remembering Jimmy's song "Big John" brings a big smile to my face. The USA music industry is thumbing it's nose at unique singers like Jimmy Dean, Johnny Horton, Johnny Cash, Faron Young, Merle Haggard, Marty Robbins, and even Elvis Presley's songs - so reading about Jimmy Dean's loss just made my day - otherwise, I wouldn't have thought about Jimmy Dean today. Something righteous came out of this afterall.

I went to public school in the 4th grade in Arlington, Va. That would have been in 1957-58, I think. One of my classmates was named Patty and the only thing I remember about her is that she constantly bragged about being a neighbor of Jimmy Dean.

I assume at that time he was appearing on a radio or TV show in the Wash., D.C. metro area. I just checked a search engine and confirmed the show.

Most of the posts here are appalling. Firefighters got injured. A couple's home is damaged by fire. Yet, you idiots have posted stupid stuff on here as if you are insane. Shame on you!

I bet it smelled like a BB-Q going on. Oh well, at least he saved his grammy (eye roll). I hope they didn't have pets competing for survival with a F**King Grammy.
