Fire destroys mansion

UPDATE: 2:50 p.m.

Investigators in Vancouver are hoping to find the cause of a fire that destroyed a mansion in the upscale Shaughnessy neighbourhood.

The blaze broke out at around 2:40 a.m. Sunday in the 3700 block of Angus Drive.

Flames could be seen shooting through the home’s roof. 

About 45 firefighters were on scene battling the blaze.

A fire department spokesperson called the blaze suspicious. He said it was difficult to put out the fire which had started in a number of areas of the residence.

The 1913-built house was said to be worth $14 million.

The house has been vacant for about five years, neighbours said.

ORIGINAL STORY: 7:35 a.m.

Flames were shooting from the roof of a home during a major fire in Vancouver's Kerrisdale neighbourhood early this morning.

Details are few so far, but it's believed the Angus Drive home was vacant at the time.

The large home went up in flames about 2 a.m., prompting a multiple-alarm response from several Vancouver Fire Department units, CTV reports.

The stubborn blaze flared up repeatedly, and firefighters used a ladder truck to fight the flames from above.

More details as they become available.
