Kimora Lee Simmons thanked the California firefighters who “quite possibly saved [the] lives” of her family members over the weekend.

The mother of five, 48, took to social media Saturday night, revealing her house “caught fire” before first responders from the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) came to the rescue.

“My house caught fire. The kids and I are all fine,” Simmons wrote on her Instagram Story alongside a snap of four people investigating her smoke-filled fireplace.

“I cannot express the deepest gratitude to the numerous battalions, ladders and units that attended to us for many hours today and quite possibly saved our lives,” she continued. “THANK YOU!❤️🥺.”

The former model shared two additional snaps of the firefighters standing in what appeared to be her living room.

The carpet was rolled back and debris was scattered on the floor in front of her fireplace.

A rep for Simmons did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.

She shares her daughters Ming, 23, and Aoki, 21, with ex-husband Russell Simmons, her son Kenzo, 14, with ex Djimon Hounsou, and son Wolfe, 8, with estranged second husband Tim Leissner.

The entrepreneur also welcomed her son Gary, 10, via adoption in 2020.

Earlier this year, the single mom spoke out about the challenges and joys of parenthood.

“Being a single mom, I think about my kids all the time and that’s it. My kids, their friends, my other kids, like, you know, I have a lot,” she told People in May.

“[My kids’] smiles, I feel like that’s the work that I do every day to keep that smile on their face. And again, that ‘smile’ means so much,” she went on.

“I’m a single mom of five kids and I know how hard it can be … it doesn’t matter if you’re rich and famous, at the end of the day … you’re a community person, a caregiver, you’re just there trying to make everything come together.”

It hasn’t been smooth sailing for her family this year. Kimora’s eldest daughters, Aoki and Ming, accused their dad, Russell Simmons, of verbal abuse on Father’s Day.

At the time, Aoki claimed her famous father threatened to ruin her modeling career and her chances at getting a job in Hollywood.

She also alleged that communicating with him gave her “panic attacks to the point [she] was placed on emergency medication every time [they] spoke.”

Russell later apologized, noting he was “deeply sorry for being frustrated and yelling.”
