ADDITIONAL NOTE: It turns out that neither Felix Hernandez nor any family members were home at the time of the fire. All are reported safe.
Fire crews are on the scene at Felix Hernandez’s home in Bellevue at this hour, responding to what the fire department there is calling “a large residential fire.”
No word yet on whether anybody was home at the time of the blaze, though several vehicles can be seen parked in the driveway.
Hernandez in July 2010 paid $3.2 million for the five bedroom, four bathroom house, which has about 5,040 square feet of living space. It also has a wine room, four fireplaces, a theater room and lake views. He bought the home a few months after signing a five-year, $78-million contract extension with the Mariners.
