Tyreek Hill leaves Dolphins practice as firefighters battle fire at his home

Tyreek Hill, wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins, left practice Wednesday amid reports that a fire was raging at his home.

The 29-year-old was informed that his family is safe before he exited the facility, according to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe.

Davie Fire Rescue Department shared a statement about the urgent matter when it was ongoing, describing it as a large residential structure fire that required multiple units from Davie, Southwest Ranches and Broward Sheriff’s Office. No injuries were reported. There will be an investigation into the cause of the fire, which is still unknown.

The Dolphins practice at Baptist Health Training Complex, which is about 12 miles from Hill's neighborhood. Emergency personnel attempted to extinguish the fire for more than 30 minutes before the wideout arrived, according to WSVN 7 News.

The local outlet live-streamed a broadcast of Hill's residence in Southwest Ranches, a suburban town in Broward County. Hill, in a walking boot on his left foot due to a lingering ankle injury, made it home around 3 p.m. EST.

Hill was seen greeting his wife, Keeta Vaccaro, who was waiting outside with two children as firefighters entered the home looking for remaining hotspots. Vaccaro carried a backpack as she and Hill walked up and down their driveway, assessing the damage to their residence. WSVN's aerial broadcast showed smoke coming through a large hole in their roof.

Hill’s agent Drew Rosenhaus addressed reporters outside of the residence once the NFL star and his family left the scene. Rosenhaus said the damage from the fire was limited to one room, expressing gratitude on the family's behalf.

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa said he didn't learn about the fire after until after Wednesday's practice.

"I think that would be difficult for, not just my teammates, but for anyone in general to be going through what Tyreek is going through right now," Tagovailoa said. "I think the main thing is his family is safe. His loved ones are good. He's good as well. I know it's a little cliché to say, but those things like that — part of the house, some of those things can be replaceable. I'm just glad that a lot of his family members are safe."

Hill joined the Dolphins in March 2022 via a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs. He purchased the mansion for $6.9 million that offseason, shortly after he signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension to stay in Miami. The deal made him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL, based on average annual value.
