Caterina Scorsone recently experienced a terrifying ordeal.
On April 3rd, the Grey’s Anatomy actress disclosed that a few months back, her house was destroyed in a fire. Caterina recounted the event and mentioned that she acted promptly to rescue her three daughters- Eliza (10), Paloma “Pippa” (6), and Lucky (3), whom she shares with her ex-husband Rob Giles, and got them out of harm’s way.
In an Instagram post, Caterina narrated, “As I was preparing my children for bedtime and wrapping up their bath, smoke started seeping through the grout surrounding the tub. As I peered down the hallway, I saw a dense black smoke stream forming and engulfing the house. One thing I learned about fires is that they spread rapidly. I had only two minutes to evacuate my three children, and we left without even putting on our footwear. However, we managed to escape safely.
Expressing her gratitude for their safe escape, Caterina disclosed with sadness that they lost all four of their pets in the fire.
Caterina remarked that they are still grieving the loss of their beloved pets, but they consider themselves fortunate to have had the opportunity to love them.
Caterina, who portrays Dr. Amelia Shepherd in the ABC series, expressed that she chose to share her story as a way of expressing gratitude to those who provided her and her family with support during a challenging period, including her neighbor, firefighters, and investigators. She did not reveal the cause of the fire.
In her words, “This is a tribute to the exceptional individuals who came forward and the remarkable ways in which they assisted us,” She continued, “I want to thank the parents at my children’s school for sending toys and books, my colleagues at @greysabc and @shondaland for sending clothing and supplies, and my sisters for handling logistics so that I could be with my children.”
Upon reflecting on the tragedy, Caterina shared a valuable lesson she learned, which is that the people and beings you cherish are the only things that truly matter. She emphasized the importance of community in times of crisis.
Accompanied by pictures of her burnt-down home and the pets they lost, the 41-year-old actress shared her heartfelt message, which received an outpouring of love from her Grey’s Anatomy co-stars.
Jake Borelli, who portrays Dr. Levi Schmitt, commented, “You are an amazing person, and I am sending all of my love to you and your loved ones.”
Melissa DuPrey, who portrays Dr. Sara Ortiz on the series, commented, “My dear friend, I am relieved that you and your family are safe. I am sorry for your loss of your furry family members and the physical items that hold memories. I am thankful that you are here and that you radiate such beauty.”
