[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. » Authorities say a $9 million mansion in Southampton Village was destroyed in a blaze that took firefighters from more than a dozen departments seven hours to extinguish.

Newsday reports the fire at the six-bedroom, 8,300-square-foot home started just before 12:30 p.m. Saturday and burned well into the evening. Mayor Mark Epley tells the newspaper residents of the two-story home escaped before firefighters arrived and were not injured.

There were reports, however, of some firefighters being treated for smoke inhalation and elevated blood pressure.

Epley says the fire started in a kitchen and did not spread to other homes.
