Home of Aerosmith Bassist Burned

The Cape Cod home of Aerosmith bass guitarist Tom Hamilton was destroyed in a fire, authorities said.

No one was in the house when a fire started just before 7 p.m. Saturday, firefighter James Murphy said. An addition to Hamilton’s home was under construction.

Minutes later, a second fire was reported at a barn about a mile away. Horses inside were rescued before flames engulfed the building, Murphy said. The barn is not owned by Hamilton.

Authorities were investigating both blazes, which caused an estimated $500,000 worth of damage.

One firefighter was treated for minor injuries.

The Boston-based band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year.
