Moreover, they also thanked the community's fire department for quick response and called them the "true heroes."
"Words cannot describe the pain we are in, but we are so incredibly grateful for the Simpsonville Fire Department and all the other firefighters who responded to our emergency. You are true heroes."
Despite the incient, the family is looking forward to "rebuilding" the property as they move on from the devastating loss.

Jennifer Lawrence's Brother Seeks Donation To Rebuilt Farm
On the other hand, TMZ cited that J. Law's family is seeking donations to help them rebuild the summer camp.
In an email obtained by the outlet, the Oscar-winning actress' brother sent letters to their former clients asking for support, stating that the family's property is more than just a mere barn.
In his letter, Blaine mentioned that the summer camp doubles as an office space he used and has a separate apartment the Lawrences uses personally.
"Not only that, but it encompassed the stalls for their horses, the indoor riding area for kids, an indoor rock wall they had, a native wildlife display center, an arts and crafts pavilion, a garage loaded with farm equipment, a new nurse station ... and more. All of that is gone," the outlet mentioned.
Although the fire destroyed a large portion of the barn, fortunately, it did not affect their outdoor sports court, including the lake area, pet barn, archery range, animal pastures, hen house and outdoor horse-riding trails.
"The Hunger Games" star is no stranger to Camp Hi Ho.
Before moving to New York to work as a model and actress at the age of 14, she grew up in the said place together with her two brothers, Ben and Blaine.
In 2014, a Twitter fan page of Lawrence shared a photo of the Academy Award winner during her visit to the summer camp way back in 2021.
