Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a ferocious fire that destroyed a $3 million mansion in Middlebury, Connecticut.

The 10,700-square-foot home was ravaged by the 3-alarm fire Thursday night, according to The Hartford Courant.

Dramatic pictures on Twitter showed the blaze ripping through the massive mansion, which is owned by motivational speaker Lawrence Janesky and his wife Wendy.

It was a challenge to put out the blaze because of a lack of water mains in the area, reported the newspaper. Two dozen trucks had to carry water from a nearby town to the mansion.

No one was injured in the fire. The couple's pets also safely escaped.
