Western Maui fires near Steven Tylers $4.8million home as they destroy town

Steven Tyler, 75, purchased his Kihei home in 2012 for an estimated $4.8million (£3,768,964.80), with the property situated on the edge of the ocean in Maui.

The Aerosmith leading man got the property for significantly less than the original asking price, with the stunning home standing on over 3,000 sq ft of land.

Constructed of redwood and walnut wood, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering spectacular panoramic views, the house has a unique style that matches the Aerosmith frontman.

In keeping with Tyler’s eccentric lifestyle, the house also features a floor-to-ceiling aquarium in one room and an infinity swimming pool.

However, the property could be hit with disaster as the Western Maui fires devastated the historic town of Lahaina in Hawaii.

United Airlines said they have removed inbound flights to Kahului Airport to assist in evacuating visitors as the island battles wildfires.

They confirmed: “We’ve cancelled today’s inbound flights to Kahului Airport so our planes can fly empty to Maui and be used as passenger flights back to the mainland.”

The airline is also offering refunds to passengers who want to cancel their flights.

Mick Fleetwood, the drummer and co-founding member of Fleetwood Mac has released a statement sharing his heartbreak over his restaurant.

Having lived in the area for “several decades”, decided to open the restaurant, bar and nightclub in 2011.

Mick wrote on Facebook: “Maui and the Lahaina community have been my home for several decades. This is a devastating moment for Maui, and many are suffering unimaginable loss.

“Fleetwood’s on Front Street has been lost and while we are heartbroken, our main priority is the safety of our dear staff and team members.

“On behalf of myself and my family, I share my heartfelt thoughts and prayers for the people of Maui.

“We are committed to supporting the community and those affected by this disaster in the days, months, and years to come.”
