There were no reports of injuries.
Authorities have not confirmed what possessions were burned or lost in the fire, but the owner of the house, attorney Brian Witzer, estimates the fire caused as much as $14 million in damage. Witzer is including the cost of damage to the house itself as well as some of his high-priced possessions. Among them were a Faberge egg and a Stradivarius violin.
Witzer's classic car collection was spared by the flames.
