    Unfortunately, it's not the home that will need the extreme makeover after this.

    A Billy Ray Cyrus concert scheduled to be featured in an upcoming episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition had to be postponed after a fire tore through the venue.

    "A chimney fire broke out tonight during an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition shoot at a secondary location where crowds gathered for a Billy Ray Cyrus concert," a rep for ABC tells E! News. "There were no injuries and all spectators were safely evacuated."

    The Cyrus show was taking place at Boulder Creek Ranch, a year-round event facility in Hesperia, Calif., near San Bernardino.

    "The cast and crew wish to express their sincere compassion to Jim and Gail Hasty, who were kind enough to host the concert at their Boulder Creek Ranch property and lost their lodge in the fire," the ABC rep said.

    Cyrus, who was already onsite when the fire broke out, also expressed his condolences to the Hastys.

    "My heart goes out to Jim and Gail Hasty and everyone at Boulder Creek Ranch," the singer said Sunday in a statement to E! News. "Jim and Gail were so gracious to open up their ranch so we could pay tribute to a very special family. I am so sorry for their loss.

    "I want to thank the Hesperia fire and police departments and everyone who helped get all of us to safety. You were amazing! I also want to thank all my fans for coming out and showing their support—I can't thank you enough! I look forward to coming back to Hesperia to play for all of you soon!"

    Ty Pennington had reportedly just arrived for the shoot, as well, when the fire started.
