Sharon Osbourne has revealed that her daughter Aimee was one of the two people who “made it out alive” of a recording studio fire on Thursday.
The TV personality shared a screengrab of a Los Angeles Times article on Instagram about the blaze, in which one person died and two people were injured.
In the caption, she revealed that her eldest child, musician Aimee, was one of the two that survived the fire.
“Today my daughter @aro_officialmusic was working in a recording studio at this building with her producer. They are the lucky two that made it out alive,” she wrote in the caption. “It is utterly heartbreaking that someone lost their life today in this fire & we are sending our prayers to this person & their family.
“What happened today was beyond horrific. I really hope moving forward that buildings like this are better regulated for fire safety. This building was a creative hub for music in Hollywood, a space that should have been regulated for fire code. Producers, musicians, mixers & artists also lost all of their equipment. Once again, our prayers go out to the family and friends of the person that lost their life to this senseless fire.”
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department told the LA Times that the fire broke out on the first floor of the two-storey industrial building, which houses multiple recording studios. Firefighters found one man dead on the first floor and the two survivors had respiratory symptoms related to smoke exposure. They were evaluated at the scene and declined to be taken to the hospital.
Aimee, 38, famously refused to participate in her family’s reality TV show The Osbournes along with Sharon, dad Ozzy Osbourne and siblings Kelly and Jack.
