Fire burns down Mack Brown's home in North Carolina

He had just moved much of his UT memorabilia from his Austin home to that house.

He told our partners at the Austin-American Statesman all that's left are two chimneys.



Bad deal... hopefully not arson... wish him the best forward.

Oh wow, that's awful! I'm glad nobody was hurt or killed. All of that priceless memorabilia destroyed...yikes!

He lived in the mountains... probably with a lot of land. I wonder if anyone even noticed - especially if it happened at night. Sounds like it burned to the ground without intervention.

It's good that nobody was hurt, however the loss of a lot of unique UT memorabilia is a cryin' shame.

Mack & Sally are pretty well off, so rebuilding the house won't be a financial burden - especially if they carried fire insurance. Wonder if they intend to stay in their multimillion $$ Austin digs?
