Kimora Lee Simmons Confirms Family Is Safe After Fire Erupted In LA Home

Kimmora Lee Simmons sends a huge thank-you to members of the Los Angeles Fire Department after they put out a fire in her family's home.

Kimora Lee Simmons is thankful for the Los Angeles Fire Department after first responders came to her family’s rescue during a house fire last weekend.

The fashion designer took to Instagram on Dec. 2 and filled her story with visuals of the fire that damaged part of her California home. People reported that the Simmons family was safe after the fire erupted in a lounge area inside the home. “My house caught fire. The kids and I are all fine,” Simmons wrote in one picture that showed members of the LAFD in front of her charred fireplace.

Simmons continued her message with a special thanks to the LA firefighters. “I cannot express the deepest gratitude to the numerous battalions, ladders, and units that attended to us for many hours today and quite possibly saved our lives,” she continued. “THANK YOU!❤️🥺.”

One photo showed four firemen suited up and facing the smoke that filled the fireplace. The carpet in the lounge area was pulled back, and the room was covered in debris. Other photos posted by Simmons showed the first responders putting out the fire.

Simmons is grateful that her family is safe. However, according to Us Weekly, the model did not reveal which family members were present during the home incident.

The Baby Phat designer is no stranger to maintaining a large mansion with a fireplace. As previously covered by BLACK ENTERPRISE, Simmons cashed out on her previous mansion in Beverly Hills. Inside the model’s main bedroom, where she slept, was a wood-burning fireplace. The nine-bedroom, 10-bathroom estate made Simmons a $5.5 million profit after a buyer purchased the property for $16.5 million following its on-and-off appearance on the rental market for several years. In December 2022, Simmons offered to lease the spot for $62,500 monthly. The new owner’s lease offer increased to $100,000 a month.
