Former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley’s home went up in flames, a home that was being foreclosed on. According The Inquisitr on Dec. 15, the Yorktown Heights, N.Y. Fire Department was called to Ace Frehley’s home about 11 a.m. on Saturday, after they received a report of smoke coming out of the roof.

When the fire department arrived, they saw “heavy smoke coming from the roof line of the building.” No one was home at the time of the blaze and no injuries were reported among the fire fighters battling the blaze.

Fire Chief Chet Swirski from the Yorktown Heights Fire Department said that the fire was mostly contained to the second floor. Fox News today is reporting the “house was heavily damaged, with flames burning through the roof. It is not known at this time how the fire started, but as with any unknown origin of a structural fire, an investigation will ensue.

The Inquisitr reports that Frehley is:

“facing foreclosure in Upstate New York with banks saying the former KISS guitarist owes hundreds of thousands of dollars on his Yorktown property.”

The Red Cross helped a resident with emergency housing, neighbors report that a caretaker had been living there. It is not known where the 62-year-old founding member of KISS was at the time of the fire. Frehley was with Kiss until 2002, according to Fox. He was with them during what they called their “farewell tour.”
