Aimée, daughter of Ozzy Osbourne, escapes Hollywood recording studio fire
Californians may be used to the danger of wildfires, but on May 20, a different kind of fire engulfed a Hollywood recording studio. According to Los Angeles Times, one man was killed by the fire from the structure and two others were injured by exposure to heavy smoke. Aimée Osbourne, daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, was one of the people in the building to escape the fire.
Aimée releases synth-pop music under the musical name ARO (her initials) and was in the studio the night of the fire with her producer.
In an Instagram post, Aimée’s mother, Sharon, opened up about the fire.
“Today my daughter @aro_officialmusic was working in a recording studio in this building with her producer. They were the lucky two who made it out alive. It is absolutely heartbreaking that someone lost their life today in this fire and we send our prayers to this person and his family.
“What happened today is beyond awful. I really hope that in the future buildings like this will be better regulated when it comes to fire safety. This building was a creative hub for the music in Hollywood, a space that should have been regulated by the fire code.Producers, musicians, mixers and artists also lost all their equipment.Again, our prayers go out to the family and friends of the person who lost his life in this senseless fire.”
According to LA Fire Captain Erik Scott, 78 firefighters battled the blaze and successfully extinguished it after nearly an hour. The building’s double drywall and large amounts of insulation made it a difficult fire to put out. “Our firefighters have been beaten,” Scott told the Los Angeles Times.
