INDIAN HILL, Ohio — A massive fire in a Cincinnati suburb destroyed a 10,000-square-foot mansion, leaving behind only a charred frame, on January 10, 2014.

Lt. Jim Gilligan of the Madeira and Indian Hill Joint Fire District told The Cincinnati Enquirer that it took firefighters about seven hours to extinguish the blaze in Indian Hill.

No one was injured, but Gilligan said the 22-room mansion was a complete loss.

The Hamilton County auditor's website shows the home's market value at more than $4 million. The family who owns the mansion wasn't home when the blaze erupted, with flames stretching more than 30 feet.

Gilligan said a fire hydrant at the home didn't provide enough water to put out a fire of that magnitude.

Firefighters were investigating the cause of the blaze.

Although a terrible loss, the photo caught my eye.

Re: Massive Fire Guts Ohio Mansion Worth More Than $4M

I always wonder what people do for a living to be able to afford a $4mil monthly morgage payment. We have some houses near us that average about 900k to 1.2 million. I always wonder about the people living in them lol. Anyway i feel bad, this looks like it was beautiful. Hopefully the insurance gives them enough to rebuild a similiar structure.

First of all rich people usually don't have mortgages.
