Jennifer Lawrence speaks out after family's farm burns down

Jennifer Lawrence is ‘grateful for the widespread support’ her family has received after their barn burned down in a serious fire.

Camp Hi Ho in Kentucky, run by the actress’ brother Blaine, was used to run a summer camp for kids.

The 30-year-old told PEOPLE in a statement that her family are ‘working together to help Blaine through this.’

Jennifer also sent her thanks to the firefighters who rushed in to tackle the blaze.

She said: ‘I want to thank my Louisville community for reaching out to my family and me following the devastating fire that sadly destroyed a significant part of Camp Hi Ho.

‘I grew up on that farm, going to Camp Hi Ho every summer. When my brother Blaine took it over, he applied his creative mind and fun loving spirit and expanded a camp that was already the coolest, because it was the only place where kids could do whatever they wanted. A muddy messy paradise.

‘I’m grateful to Camp Hi Ho for the amazing childhood memories. My family and I are working together to help Blaine through this.

‘And we are so grateful for the widespread support from the community to get Camp Hi Ho back up and running so we can welcome kids back this summer.’

The damage to the barn was revealed in a message posted on the camp’s Facebook page.

The statement read: ‘We are deeply thankful that no people or animals were hurt, but we are still mourning the loss of years of hard work and memories that occurred in these walls.

‘Words cannot describe the pain we are in, but we are so incredibly grateful for the Simpsonville Fire Department and all the other fire fighters who responded to our emergency. You are true heroes.’

The Hunger Games star has been known to make an appearance at the property.

According to TMZ, stalls and the indoor riding area, farm equipment, a rock wall, a native wildlife centre, a new nurse station, the office space and a separate apartment were all destroyed in the fire.
