Dozens of firefighters battled a fire at a multi-million-dollar home that started in a gated community in Rancho Santa Fe Sunday evening.
Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District crews responded to the fire at the two-story home around 8:20 p.m. on Spyglass Lane, near the Farms Golf Club in the Fairbanks Ranch area. Crews put out the fire by 10:30 p.m. and said they were staying to clean up the property.
From a distance, NBC 7 crews could see heavy smoke and flames. Neighbors said at one point, the flames were shooting high into the air. The home is 20,000 square feet, Deputy Chief Dave McQuead said, and there were cleaning crews inside the home at some point around the time it started. There were no injuries reported.
Several portions of the roof collapsed and there was significant damage to the house, McQuead added.
