Report: Charles Woodson escapes fire that destroyed home

The reigning NFL defensive player of the year made it to safety in Michigan on Saturday when a multi-million dollar home in tony Bay Harbor was destroyed by a fire.

Woodson and his business partner Rick Ruiz were among 11 people still in the home after 4 a.m. following a party, according to Bill Michaels of WTMJ in Milwaukee. The home was completely destroyed in the blaze.

The Green Bay Packers cornerback was likely in attendance because the party was celebrating a large gift to the University of Michigan Women’s Hospital. Woodson, of course, donated $2 million to the hospital last year.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the fire, the cause of which has not yet been determined.
