'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.

I would have never heard of her if TMZ didn't post this.

Well, she can use the money she will get from this sh*tty show (surprise! The show feels sorry for her and will give her $25,000 tonight) to pay the REAL OWNERS for the damages....they are just renting the house.

To the comments from #7 and #10:
Nick didn't have a ticket to the final show because Britney could only have ONE...and they had agreed beforehand that she have her mother attend since they've watched the show together since it began. Also, I looked at the picture again...take a closer look. That GRILL IS STILL IN TACT AND ISN'T EVEN KNOCKED OVER. Personally, I think the Fire Deptartment's first suggestion is probably incorrect. The attic is completely burned out and that is where I believe the fire began. The fire alarm never went off even though the batteries were changed and it was tested a few weeks ago...and it was right outside his bedroom. He is lucky to be alive. And to have saved both dogs, too...
Why do others always suspect foul play when something like this happens instead of trying to put themselves in that persons "shoes?" How would YOU feel if you woke up in the middle of the night and YOUR house was on fire? How would you feel standing in the street with your dogs, parents, best friends and neighbors and watch smoke pour out of your rental home? And how would YOU feel if you thought you lost everything you'd worked so hard to gain? Don't judge too soon. In fact, if you met Nick, I have no doubt that you would like him...and know that he is an honest, good-natured guy who hasn't ever had an enemy...I guess until now.

Sorry to hear about Brit's house, that is sad, but she has 10G's to replace her stuff. Glad no one was hurt. As far as Britney goes, can't stand the chick. She gives Arkansas a bad name. She thought she was so much better than everyone else. W a spoiled little brat.

Actually, she's NOT as spoiled as you think she is. Please remember that there is a LOT of editing going on! She does, however, have the gift of great "one liners." Her humor is intelligent and, if you watched the show, pretty much right on the mark. And, just so you know, she won a LOCAL beauty pageant not Miss America!

If that's true then Rachel better hide in a cave 'cause karma must be sending a meteor after her.

Kinda ironic that it was started by a grill. About a week ago on Big Brother, they tried to start a grill and about blew up the Big Brother house.

Sparklin    

Dani - he was already packed to leave on his flight today at noon!! The fire started in the middle of the night. He was def. going to the finale tonight regardless and thankfully his family and hers stayed behind to deal with whatever needed doing. They say a spark MAY have happened from him grilling earlier in the evening! He is definitely still engaged to Britney...just fyi!

Dani,
obviously you aren't an avid BB watcher. Usually the only families that are in the audience are the finalists families.

This is really sad for Brit. I'm just glad Nick got out and saved the dogs. Britney is going to be so upset. To all you haters, we have a saying in Ar, "If you don't have anything nice to say then shut the f**k up."
