  • The Lawrence family is reportedly "devastated" after their family farm burned down.
  • The farm also runs a summer camp, Camp Hi-Ho. They shared that the camp's barn was lost in a "horrible fire", though no people or animals were harmed.
  • Jennifer Lawrence's brother, Blaine, said they hope to rebuild and open again for summer 2021. 

Jennifer Lawrence's family farm, which also runs a summer camp, has burned down. Located in Kentucky, the farm went up in flames on Friday evening.

Camp Hi-Ho said in a statement on Facebook on Saturday: "It is with the heaviest of hearts that we confirm the news that we lost our barn last night in a horrible fire."

No people or animals were harmed in the fire, they said, adding that they are "still mourning the loss of years of hard work and memories that occurred in these walls".

"We know Camp Hi-Ho is a special place to so many, and we plan to rebuild and repair so that we can move forward with a safe and joyful camp experience this summer," they concluded.

According to TMZ, owner and director of Camp Hi-Ho, Blaine Lawrence, who is Jennifer Lawrence's brother, said in an email that the barn lost in the fire housed his office space, stalls for the horses, an indoor riding area for kids, an indoor rock wall, a native wildlife display, an arts and crafts area and a garage with farm equipment and a nurse station.

The publication says the Lawrence family is "devastated" by the loss, but promises to rebuild and open again for summer 2021.
