The alarm to the fire department in Glynn County came at 05.18 local time and 16 firefighters fought the fire which was fought for a couple of hours before the house, valued at around SEK 50 million, caught fire.

55-year-old Love and his wife Robin were the only ones in the house and they managed to get out. The cause of the fire is unknown, but the fire should have occurred in the garage, according to AP.

"While everyone in our family is saddened by the loss of our home's sleep, filled with so much laughter and incredible memories, we are blessed that everyone is safe and unharmed," Love said in a statement.

"We keep things in perspective"

The disaster occurred in the midst of the current corona crisis.

"We keep things in perspective as people in our society and around the world struggle with the current unprecedented health crisis."
