Jennifer Lawrence and her family lament the loss of their Kentucky family farm and summer camp after it burned down in a ‘horrible fire’. Camp Hi-Ho in Simpsonville, Kentucky, run by Lawrence’s brother Blaine, shared the details about the incident in a Facebook post on Saturday revealing the blaze took half a dozen trucks to be brought under control.
“Words cannot express the pain we are in. It is with the heaviest of hearts that we confirm the news that we lost our barn last night in a horrible fire. We are deeply thankful that no people or animals were hurt, but we are still mourning the loss of years of hard work and memories that occurred in these walls,” the statement said.
Simpsonville Assistant Fire Chief Bobby Cravens told WLKY-TV from the scene that the water source in the rural location was one of the problems with the firefight. The fire’s origin remains under investigation.
In addition to thanking the firefighters, the Facebook statement also thanked God with a vow to rebuild before the summer.
Registration for the 2021 summer season had only begun at the camp before the fire broke out.
Lawrence’s mother, Karen had said in a 2019 interview that the camp had a lot to offer, including arts and craft horses, archery, a lake, fishing, kayaks, paddleboats, a fort, and a place called Hammock City, where lots of hammocks are tied to trees and kids can just hang out there all day and read or even daydream. she had also told that the camp was sold to Blaine when things started getting busy with Jennifer’s career.
In one group shot with some staffers and campers, years after appearing in her first hit, The Hunger Games, Jennifer posed near an outdoor playground of the farm. However, she has not yet commented on the fire at her family farm.
