New Las Vegas Lights coach Eric Wynalda lost his home to the Woolsey Fire early Friday morning.

Around 3:30 a.m., Wynalda tweeted that he and his family had evacuated and hoped that the fire wouldn't take their home. About a half hour later, he said it's not good when the news trucks are on your street. Within the next half hour, his house was gone.

According to The San Diego Union-Tribune, his home was destroyed in Westlake Village in Ventura County. 

Around noon Friday, Wynalda reflected on losing his home but reiterated that his family was safe.

"You can rebuild homes, replace belongings, you can’t replace life. We cannot forget that now more than ever. Please support the ones who need it the most and continue to honor those who serve to keep us safe. Count your blessings folks- I am," he tweeted.
