According to reports, the fire began at around 6:15 p.m. CT, and took 22 firefighters almost two hours to put it out.

“If they didn’t get there when they did, it could have been much worse. It’s a historic home,” a spokesperson from the fire department said, revealing there were no injuries or evacuations.

The 15,200 square foot home was originally built in 1927 as the Westminster Presbyterian church, then it became an eight-dancer ballet company, before being converted into a home in 2000.

Inside are six bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms, and a 26-foot-tall great room with wooden floors, a patio, and a balcony.
