WLKY said Simpsonville Fire and Rescue received a call from Camp Hi-Ho around 9 p.m. EST on Friday and arrived on the scene a short time later. Three fire departments worked together to control the fire, which took more than hour to put out.

Fire officials in Simpsonville are continuing to investigate the incident.

Lawrence's brother, Blaine Lawrence, who is the director of Camp Hi-Ho, shared more details in an e-mail to parents of past campers obtained by TMZ.

Blaine Lawrence said the barn housed an office space, a separate apartment, stalls for their horses, an indoor riding area for the kids, an indoor rock wall, an arts and crafts pavilion and a garage full of farm equipment, all of which were lost in the fire.

In the e-mail, Blaine Lawrence asked for community donations and for families to return to camp once it reopens.

Lawrence most recently appeared in the 2019 Marvel film Dark Phoenix. She will star in and produce the upcoming movie Red, White and Water, co-starring Brian Tyree Henry.
