Four bodies were found inside the home of tennis star James Blake on Wednesday morning after flames ripped through the Florida mansion.

The 5,856-square-foot home, situated North of Tampa Bay in the exclusive  neighborhood of Avila, caught fire around 5:45 a.m. and according to several neighbors, there were allegedly multiple explosions heard before the intense inferno. James has allegedly been leasing the home to a family of four and according to detectives, Blake was not in Florida during the time of the fire.

Firefighters tell detectives that fireworks were found inside the home and some reports suggest that the fireworks were actually strapped to the victims heads. There were also reports of gunshots, but according to officials that could have been from the fireworks if and when they went off.

“(The fire) is destroying potential evidence to tell us what may have happened, what may have led to this fire,” HSCO Col. Donna Lusczynski tells FOX 31 in Tampa.

Blake, who retired from tennis last year, was one of the top two American players from 2006-2008. He had his best year in 2006 when with five ATP titles on four continents in eight finals. In 2008, the New York native hit his third career Grand Slam QF and finished in fourth place at the Beijing Olympics.

HipHollywood reached out to Blake and his family but no word back.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
