SOUTHPORT - A mansion in Fairfield was destroyed by a fire today after firefighters worked for hours to get the fast-moving blaze under control.

Officials say the fire broke out this morning at a Southport estate at 323 Warren Hill Road, valued at about $1.5 million.

All that remains standing of the once-opulent home is a crumbling chimney. The homeowner says he's heartbroken that his dream home has been reduced to a pile of ashes.

Officials say nobody was injured. Investigators are still searching for the cause of the blaze, but say it appears accidental.
