Massive 4-alarm fire destroys mansion in Massachusetts originally appeared on abcnews.go.com
A massive fire broke out at a home in Massachusetts Friday, destroying parts of the mansion as flames poured out of the windows.
The response is ongoing to the blaze in Concord, about 20 miles outside of Boston, according to town officials.
The house is a five-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion built in 1899, reported ABC Boston affiliate WCVB, citing town records.
Video from the scene showed much of the second story engulfed in crackling flames as plumes of smoke filled the air.

There were no reports of injuries.
Firefighters' efforts on the ground were impeded by a lack of water near the house, according to town officials.
Video from around 1:30 p.m. showed much of the fire under control, but town officials said the response was ongoing.
Fire response is ongoing. The firefighting efforts have been hampered by a lack of water available close to the home.
