Boxer George Foreman and his family were evacuated from their Huffman, Texas mansion Sunday after a garage fire broke out, damaging at least 40 of the former heavyweight champ’s vehicles, KHOU reports.

Heavy smoke damage was reported, and firefighters used large fans to blow smoke away from the main house, saving the majority of his property. The cause of the fire is still being investigated, according to KTRK.

Foreman later tweeted, “Don’t worry all is well. Dogs are barking and I don’t mean my feet. Thanks to all the fire fighters. Huffman, Houston New caney. Atascosita. Al them guy and women.”
