Veteran NFL wide receiver Randall Cobb and his wife issued a joint statement saying they are lucky to be alive after a fire tore through their Nashville home.

Cobb’s wife, Aiyda Cobb, said a Tesla charger “caught fire in the garage last night and spread quickly” through their home. She shared the news on Instagram.

“I left the house with nothing but the clothes on my back and no shoes on my feet,” she wrote.

Randall and Aiyda have three young sons.

“I can’t get the image of the brave fireman getting into position out of my head; he didn’t even have water to draw yet. I really thought the cars were going to explode and we were going to lose him to this tragedy. He is a true hero,” Cobb wrote. “Unfortunately, we don’t know how much, if anything, will be salvageable, but this was a reminder that nothing is more important than our family’s health.

“We are grateful for our incredible community in Nashville and the support of our close friends who have given us a temporary roof over our heads and shoulders to lean on.”

The Cobbs also thanked the Nashville Fire Department for their “quick” action.

On ESPN:

“The Instagram post includes videos showing burnt cars and extensive damage from the garage fire.

Cobb, 33, played last season for the New York Jets and is a free agent. He played 10 of his first 12 seasons with the Green Bay Packers and ranks fifth in franchise history with 532 receptions, 10th in receiving touchdowns (47) and 11th in receiving yards (6,316).”
