    Charles Woodson escapes before fire burns house to ground

    Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was one of 11 people who escaped a house fire in Bay Harbor, Michigan, on Saturday, WTMJ is reporting.

    No one was injured, but the multimillion-dollar home burned to the ground.

    According to the report, Woodson and his business partner, Rick Ruiz, were in the home and smelled smoke around 4 a.m.

    The Petoskey News-Review reports that there was a gathering at the home for "a celebration for the family for a large gift and naming of the University of Michigan Women's Hospital."

    Woodson donated $2 million to the hospital last year. The owner of the home that burned down is a member of a family whose foundation donated $15 million to the hospital.

    That is a shame about the house and I'm glad everyone got out safe. Nice job by Woodson on the donation, first I have heard of this. Nice to see this guy is donating to a worthwhile cause.
