According to the New York Post, NFLer Earl Thomas’ house is a complete loss after a massive fire. According to the report, firefighters did their best but it was too late to put the fire under control.
Officials believe the former safety’s Orange, Texas house was struck by lightning, with Fox 4 Beaumont reporting the fire is under control — though crews “could be there for hours,” per 12NewsNow.
Thomas was reportedly at the scene, but left. He has not commented publicly on the fire. Early reports indicate no one was hurt and that the house is considered “a complete loss.”
Plants and vegetation on the property reportedly made extinguishing the fire more difficult.
Thomas, an Orange native, last played for the Baltimore Ravens in 2019. He tallied seven Pro Bowl nods, five All-Pro honors and a Super Bowl title during his 10-year NFL career, nine seasons of which were spent with the Seattle Seahawks.
He has not played since 2020 he was released by the Ravens after he punched a teammate during a preseason practice. He told ESPN in April that he wants to get back into the NFL.
“I’m ready,” Thomas told Adam Schefter. “I’m in shape. My timing is on point — I’m proud of that.”
Thomas likely will never play in the NFL again for this reason.
BSO was the first to report that Ex-Seahawks and Ravens safety Earl Thomas was on the run from cops after violating a court order about threatening his wife, Nina. Nina provided text messages showing that Thomas had threatened to poison his kids and implied she might have some car trouble and would run off the road with her new boyfriend driving.
Nina believes it because he has CTE.
Recently, the woman told police Thomas began sending her text messages that threatened the woman and her children. On April 18, police say Thomas texted the woman that he had obtained two handguns earlier that day. Later, he texted: “Waiting on hand in foot is why I’ll kick ur ass.”
The next day, police say Thomas texted: “I hope u in the car with him and the kids and yall drive off the road.” That same day, police say he texted: “Ima let my momma and my cousins poison they (their children) ass.” The woman told police Thomas suffered several concussions playing football and may have CTE — the term commonly used for brain degeneration caused by head trauma.
