'Big Brother' Star's

House Burns Down

9/15/2010 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She just got burned inside the "Big Brother" house -- but this morning, the Arkansas home where contestant Britney Haynes was set to return to after tonight's finale was heavily damaged in a fire.

According to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Haynes' home caught fire early this morning while her fiance was still in the home ... though he managed to escape the blaze without injury.

Even though Britney was eliminated from the BB house last week -- she's still sequestered in the "Jury House" and cut off from the outside world -- until the season finale concludes tonight.

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation -- but officials claim the cause doesn't appear to be suspicious and believe it may have originated from a grill at the home.

Hot, Blond and Stupid; it doesn't get any better than that! That said, she was the main attraction for BB. Now that she is gone, who cares who wins?

So, her fiancé didn't go to the Live finale show?!? Hmm, sounds like someone may not have a fiancé when she gets home either. I know they said it wasn't suspicious but, you have to wonder if he didn't do it on purpose. Why wouldn't he have been in LA for the live event? Something doesn't sound right. I hope she wins the fan vote for the money now. She's going to be so upset to know everything she won will probably have to go right into a new home and belongings. Maybe, Lane will take her in. That's really going to suck if she lost her home and fiancé while away. Oh well, I guess it could have been worse.

as to the commentor who stated her fiance wasn't in LA. Thank goodness his flight is today and the animals were all ok.
He released a statement that he had a flight today and was also able to run back in the house and get the dogs. about a month and a half ago she reminded Nick on the feeds to purchase the renters insurance since they had just moved to that house before she came in the hosue.

#5, Britney was NOT stupid. You obviously didn't watch very much of BB. Just because she's blond doesn't mean she's stupid.

@cha cha

He wasn't going to go to the show. He's also the one who burned it down while grilling. If he wasn't there...no fire would have happened. He's only flying out there today because he said he wants to be the one to break the news to her because he thinks she's going to be mad.

Also, blows my theory, if there are "life long friends" in the BB house, I thought maybe Lane was really Nick by the way she and him flirted so much.

Glad no one was hurt though, the article did say, he was grilling and the fire broke out. He tried to douse it with water but, it took off. Still sounds suspicious to me.

I know for a fact how easy a house fire can start with cooking involved. Instead of hateful comments, it would be nice to see more positive wishes and less of the moronic babble.

That's terribly sad FOR HER no matter how or why it started. It's truely disheartening that society today has loss the ability to be compassionate.

Oh Britney!! That is SO sad!! Talk about taking the thunder away from what is supposed to be an amazing experience!! She was my favorite, by far, of all the houseguests!!! I really hope America picks her for AFP, and I really hope a network knows what she's worth and gives her an opportunity to get an even better house!!
