The quick-moving flames reached the mansion's patio by Friday afternoon. But another house on the property has been completely destroyed by the fires. The house is used mainly for production purposes.
The 7,500 sq. ft. mansion is named Villa De La Vina and was built in 2005. It is actually a residence to a man named Marshall Haraden and his family. They leave the premises twice a year for a few weeks to let the show film.
We hope that the residents of Southern California are safe and sound.
