6/4/2011 5:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Tennessee home of country music star Trace Adkins was destroyed by a fire this afternoon, but everyone in the home got out safe.

A babysitter was home with the children at the time of the fire. Adkins' wife Rhonda told WSMV the family had a fire plan in place. 

Rhonda was not home at the time and Trace is traveling to Alaska. 

Brian Goss, the Asst. Fire Chief for the Brentwood Fire & Rescue Dept., tells TMZ the fire started in the garage and spread up the walls and to the attic -- but the cause was not yet known. 

There was one injury that was somewhat related to the fire. A neighbor rushed over to help save the family dog -- and the dog bit him. The neighbor was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover just fine.

Trace's daughter was so composed and articulate as she described what happened. So glad everyone made it out safely and they got the animals out as well. The lives are the important part! God speed Trace, Rhonda, the kids, nanny and animals.

WoW.

I knew Trace was a sociopath whose wife had to shoot him when he tried to kill her,

but for Trace to arrange this insurance fraud arson jeapordising his own kids is pretty low. Oh wait, that would save money too if the fire got them.
