Felix Hernandez's $3.2M House in Seattle Catches Fire

The home of Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez caught fire on Monday. Fire crews were on site to facilitate the situation, according to a report by Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times.

Baker was at Hernandez's residence to capture the scene as the Bellevue Fire Department tended to the inferno that ignited within the home and was deemed "a large residential fire."

Shannon Drayer of MyNorthwest.com confirmed that nobody was home when the fire occurred: 

According to The Seattle Times report, Hernandez bought the five-bedroom, four-bathroom home for $3.2 million in July 2010. The purchase came a few months after the 2010 American League Cy Young Award winner signed a five-year, $78 million contract extension to remain in Seattle.   

The Mariners endured a fourth consecutive losing season this year and did not give their ace much help in the way of run support.

Hernandez posted a stellar 3.04 ERA, but managed only a 12-10 record in 2013.
