Blaze tears through Fairbanks Ranch mansion, home deemed a total loss

FAIRBANKS RANCH (KUSI) – A blaze gutted a mansion valued at $11 million in an upscale North County neighborhood and caused portions of the roof to collapse, authorities said Monday.

Crews responded shortly after 8:20 p.m. Sunday to a two-story home in the 6800 block of Spyglass Lane, near the Farms Golf Club in the Fairbanks Ranch area, according to the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District.

Firefighters arrived to find smoke and flames coming from the back of the home, district spokeswoman Julie Taber said.

There was a cleaning crew inside around the time that the fire started, but they were able to get out safely, Taber said.

No other structures were threatened and no injuries were reported.

Crews knocked down the flames by 10:10 p.m., according to the Fire District.

The residence was deemed a total loss because of the extensive damage, Taber said.

The mansion, which had seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, is listed on the Zillow website for nearly $11 million.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
