OZZY OSBOURNE's Daughter AIMÉE Narrowly Escapes Deadly Fire At Hollywood Recording Studio
May 20, 2022
Aimée Osbourne, the eldest daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, escaped a fire that claimed one life at an industrial building in Hollywood, California Thursday night (May 19).
Sharon posted about the fire on her Instagram page. In her post, she said Aimée, who makes electropop music under the ARO banner, was in the building at the time working in a recording studio.
"Today my daughter @aro_officialmusic was working in a recording studio at this building with her producer," she wrote. "They are the lucky two that made it out alive.
"It is utterly heartbreaking that someone lost their life today in this fire & we are sending our prayers to this person & their family.
"What happened today was beyond horrific," Sharon continued. "I really hope moving forward that buildings like this are better regulated for fire safety.
"This building was a creative hub for music in Hollywood, a space that should have been regulated for fire code. Producers, musicians, mixers & artists also lost all of their equipment.
"Once again, our prayers go out to the family and friends of the person that lost their life to this senseless fire."
The fire was first reported around 6:35 p.m. Firefighters arrived on scene to find smoke pouring out of a two-story concrete building. According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, it took 78 firefighters and 51 minutes to extinguish the fire.
The body was found as firefighters searched the structure.
LAFD Captain Erik Scott told Fox 11 that the design of the studios made the firefighters' task very challenging.
"There were an abundance of small individual recording studios inside the building so that made it very difficult to navigate with zero visibility," Scott said. "Additionally, the studios had sound deadening with very thick walls that really held all the heat in, making this a very intense firefight."
According to CBS News, the building dates back to the 1920s, making it exempt from fire sprinkler requirements.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Last month, Aimée shared a new song, "Against Mine", released under the ARO banner. It was her first new track in two years.
ARO's debut album, "Vacare Adamaré", came out in 2020.
Aimée didn't participate in her family's reality TV show, "The Osbournes". Aimée, who was only 15 years at the time, reportedly went as far as to move out of the family home in an effort to stay away from the cameras.
