Gretna officials say a fire has razed a home belonging to a former Nebraska football player on Wednesday morning.

Officials say that no injuries have been reported from the Gretna fire, which was reported a little after 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Sarpy County records say the 2,900-square-foot ranch-style home is registered to Aaron Graham.

Graham was the Huskers starting center from 1992 through 1995. He also spent six seasons in the National Football League. 


Gretna Fire Chief Rod Buethe told the Associated Press that Graham and his family escaped unharmed from the blaze, which he says likely was touched off by a lightning strike.

He says the state fire marshal's office is investigating. Graham didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
