A child playing with a lighter caused the fire that destroyed part of Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill’s $7 million Broward mansion on Wednesday, according to firefighters.

“The fire was determined to be accidental, and it was caused by a child playing with a lighter within one of the bedrooms alone” Fire Marchal Robert Taylor, of the Davie Fire Rescue Department, told the Miami Herald on Thursday morning. “Thankfully, everyone was able to get out safely.”

Around 1:55 p.m. Wednesday, 20 units from Davie Fire Rescue Department, Southwest Ranches Volunteer Fire Department and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue rushed to Hill’s two-story house, in the 16000 block of Berkshire Court.

First responders work an active fire inside the Landmark Ranch Estates neighborhood on Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2023, in Southwest Ranches, Fla. Davie Fire Rescue crews alongside the Broward Sheriff’s Office worked to put out a two-alarm fire at a home belonging to Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill inside the gated community.
