The New York Post reported the musical icon’s home in the area had gone up in flames in the blaze, citing a source as saying, “Everything was destroyed – all of Stevie’s memorabilia, photos, musical instruments, history, clothing, furniture, everything…It’s all gone.”
City News Service wires later picked up the Post’s report.
However, Wonder told Access Hollywood that his home in the area escaped any serious damage.
“I’m grateful to say that my house was not burned down in the fire,” Wonder said in a statement to Access. “I extend my sympathies to anyone who may have been touched by this horrendous event.”
