Early Morning Fire Breaks Out in Large Annapolis Home.

A massive Annapolis, Md., mansion burned to the ground early Monday, sending authorities sifting through the still-smoking wreckage of the $14 million residence in a desperate search for the home’s owners.LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Anne Arundel County Fire are battling a four-alarm fire on the 900 block of Childs Point Road, which broke out early Monday morning in Annapolis.

— A spokesman for a Maryland fire department says six people are unaccounted for after a 4-alarm blaze destroyed a 16,000-square-foot mansion in the state’s capital. Russ Davies, a fire department spokesman, told the Gazette. “But we are operating under the premise that there (were) people inside.” While tax records indicate the home is worth $6.2 million, a law firm associated with the company insuring the home pegged its value at $13.9 million, according to the Gazette.

Because there was not a fire hydrant in the area, firefighters shuttled water tankers to the site and stationed a fire boat at a pier near the property to bring in water. Because of the intensity of the fire, the size of the house and the failure of the roof and floors, firefighters were not able to search the structure, Davies said. Some 85 firefighters battled the blaze after it broke out on the second floor of the two story home, which was built in 2005 and boasts seven bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.
