Alaskan Bush People patriarch Billy Brown’s $1.6 MILLION Washington real estate empire in ruins as fire ravages property
ALASKAN Bush People star Billy Brown's $1.6 million real estate empire in Washington is in ruins after a wildfire destroyed their property.
The Sun can exclusively reveal Billy, 67, spent $1.6 million on four parcels of forest land for $415,000 each in February 2018.
The family owns over 436 acres of land.
Billy and Ami's son Bear revealed last week that the family suffered a “devastating loss.”
He captioned a series of photos of a forest fire: “A fire swept through our mountain, our home! The [loss] seems to be great! It’s still burning! I’ll keep everyone posted! God bless!”
He responded to a fan: “It was beautiful! We won’t give up, that I guarantee!!!”
The Brown family posted a video on the Alaskan Bush People Instagram account regarding the fire.
Noah Brown said: "There’s been a massive wild fire on Palmer Mountain.”
Bear added: "Everybody made it out completely safe, we’re all totally good.”
Snowbird continued: "And we’d also like to just thank all the first responders and the firefighters that are working hard to put the fire and save everybody’s home.”
Rain added: ”Our hearts and prayers are with everybody going through times like these with us, just make sure that you can reach out and do what you can, where you can.”
The Palmer Fire started on Tuesday, burning through 18,077 acres of land.
The fire is 27 percent contained.
The fire will be a storyline for the upcoming season, as TV Insider reported crew were on site as the fire wrecked havoc on the Brown’s land.
Before the forest fire, patriarch Billy said of the family’s plans for the land: “With the new property, we have an actual ranch. We’re thinking about barns, horses, cattle.”
In a trailer for the current season, the family struggles to make it through the harsh winter, as they also deal with coyotes and bears while building on their vast property.
Billy said in a preview: “We’ve gone through great extremes to do things the way we want to do them. Everyone has to bust it more than we’ve ever had. Nothing is going to stop the Browns.”
Season 12 of Alaskan Bush People is currently airing, with the premiere kicking off on Sunday.
The episode focused on Bear and his ex-fiancee Raiven Adams preparing for their wedding on the Brown property.
Bear opened up about his “nerves” before the big day and the two called their nuptials off days before the wedding.
Bear and Raiven began dating after meeting at his brother Noah’s wedding and got engaged in 2019.
Did Bear Brown on Alaskan Bush People get married?
BEAR Brown of Alaskan Bush People was set to wed Raiven Adams, but it was not to be.
They called off their wedding just days before the ceremony after he disappeared and no one could find him.
