SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- No injuries were reported after a fire erupted at a mansion in the Fairbanks Ranch community Sunday evening.

According to Rancho Santa Fe Fire District officials, the blaze was reported at a home in the 6800 block of Spyglass Lane at around 8:20 p.m.

Crews were able to put out the fire just after 10 p.m.

A fire chief said a cleaning crew was inside the home when the fire started, but everyone inside got out of the structure safely.

At one point during the firefighting effort, crews were forced to evacuate because the attic roof began to collapse.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The mansion is listed on the Zillow website for nearly $11 million. The real-estate website describes the home as a Venetian palace with seven bedrooms and nine baths.
