Paralyzed Motocross Star's House Is Destroyed by Flames



    All that remains of motorcycle racing legend Doug Henry’s Torrington home at 776 Guerdat Road is the chimney after a three-alarm fire on Wednesday.

    When emergency crews arrived at the house on Wednesday, it was engulfed in flames. By Wednesday afternoon, there was virtually nothing left of it.

    Henry, 40, is a Hall of Fame cyclist, who became paralyzed from the waist down in a Supermoto crash in March 2007.

    He began racing again this year and was in California on Wednesday to race in A Day in the Dirt at Pala Raceway, according to Troy Lee Designs, based in California.  

    Earlier this year, Henry competed in his first race since the crash -- the Adaptive SnoCross race at the Winter XGames in Colorado in January, according to ESPN.

    Henry’s wife, Stacey, was at the fire scene. Henry is on his way home from California.
