No word yet as to what caused it, but they will have some cleanup to do.

Last night the local fire department was called to the Harvick’s house where a fire started in the basement in the early morning hours. There was structural and smoke damage within the area. Kevin, DeLana and Keelan were not injured. Thank you all for the outpouring of concern.

Re: Fire At Harvicks' House Last Night

At 7:33PM on Nov. 25, Kevin Tweeted this photo with the comment, "Evening project on a really cold night!" So they had been using the fireplace, probably for the first time of this winter season. The chimney probably needed to be cleaned this summer before it's first use.

Re: Fire At Harvicks' House Last Night

Glad they're ok too. I just seen info on this else there a few mins ago. Then checked over here to see what everyone is saying.

We had our's cleaned a few years ago. Only used it 3 times since it has been cleaned, but we have a fireplace incert & we close the doors to use it for heat when it's really cold in the house or we have no elec because of a bad storm.

I wonder if they have one of them fireplace screens that goes in front to protect stuff from spitting out to catch something on fire.

Re: Fire At Harvicks' House Last Night

Reading this Tweet from DeLana, it sounds like the Harvicks are out of their house, living in a motor home after the fire:

In an ironic twist, @KevinHarvick and I are kinda like cousin Eddie and Catherine since we're living in the motorhome... #shittersfull

Not much of a Kevin fan but I'm a huge Delana fan. She has a great sense of humor.

Re: Fire At Harvicks' House Last Night

Update on the Harvick's house fire and cause of it.

#Kevin Harvick said that the smoke damage from the fire in his home before Thanksgiving was greater than first thought. Harvick said he and his family likely won’t be able to return to their home for four to six months because of the damage.

As for the fire, Harvick said: “The floor joists underneath the fireplace caught on fire, in between the downstairs ceiling and the upstairs floor. We couldn't really find the fire. It was basically just sitting between the two floors getting bigger and bigger. When we walked downstairs there was probably 3 feet of smoke from top to bottom from one end of the house to another. If you haven’t checked you’re fire alarm lately, go check because it saved our house and all our stuff.’’

Re: Fire At Harvicks' House Last Night

If it started between floor joists on the first and second floor.....I wonder if it was electrical....my cousin had a fire similar and they found squirrels had chewed on wiring between floors...they got it by a tiny hole between the brick and mortar and had a party on the plastic coating of the electrical wiring and it short-circuited that caused a big fire that smoldered for quite awhile before burning through floor board and dry wall....they thought it wasn't bad until they took up the floor to replace it and found it had burned almost the entire floor between first and second floor....quite a large area.....about 2000 sq feet.....It was a mess!
