Lou Holtz’ Home Destroyed by Fire; Urban Meyer’s House Flooded

Both Lou Holtz and Urban Meyer’s houses had damage inflicted upon it this weekend due to two separate incidences. Holtz’ $1.6 million Orlando home was destroyed by a fire due to a probable lightning strike on Sunday.

Thankfully, both Holtz and his wife Beth fled the house early and did not get injured in the fire. Holtz said about half of his sports memorabilia collection was lost in the fire.

More from the Associated Press (h/t ESPN.com):

The fire broke out early Sunday morning in the 11,000-square-foot home in the gated Lake Nona Gold and Country Club community, which is known for its multimillion-dollar homes.
Holtz told the Orlando Sentinel he was awakened by smoke alarms about 2:30 a.m. He says he tried to go upstairs to grab his wallet and cellphone but there was too much smoke. The couple called 911 and ran outside.

Meanwhile, due to severe rain, Meyer’s house had some major flooding on Sunday. Meyer’s wife, Shelley, posted some pictures of the damage on Twitter:

Meyer was an assistant coach for Holtz in 1996 when Holtz was coaching at Notre Dame. Both coaches are one of the more recognizable names in college football and we hope both of their houses recover from the damage.
