$5 Million Mansion Burns to Ground on Shores of Lake Minnetonka
The fire was so big that the smoke flume was seen on weather radar!
Firefighters in Wayzata, MN had their hands full last night as a mansion that was currently being built on the shores of Lake Minnetonka and valued at over $5 million caught fire.
The fire crews had to bring in tankers full of water to fight the blaze, as there are no fire hydrants in the area, and the below zero temperatures didn't help the situation either. Thankfully, there were no injuries caused by the inferno.
The home is own by Jon Davis, a member of one of Minnesota's richest families, he told the Star Tribune, “the firefighters were unbelievable, especially in the frigid conditions and without a lot of resources to fight the fire. No one was hurt, and that’s what’s most important. Everything else is just ‘stuff. ”
