A 16,000 square-foot home in Prospect collapsed after it engulfed in flames Monday afternoon, according to media reports.

Fire department crews from North Oldham, Harrods Creek, Worthington, St. Matthews and South Oldham all responded to the fire to the six-bedroom house, located on Reserve Cove Drive in Prospect , the Courier-Journal reported. The home was burning for more than four hours after the fire began, WLKY reported. 

There were no reports of injuries, according to WDRB. The home owner and his wife were able to escape safely, WLKY reported.

By Tuesday, “hardly any of” the home was left standing, North Oldham Fire Chief Tim Conway told the Courier-Journal. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. 

According to property records, the home sits on 1.68 acres and was built in 2007. The home features 10 bathrooms and was listed on Zillow.com for $3.495 million. The real estate agency was Lenihan Sotheby’s International Realty.

Its taxable value is listed at $3 million on the Oldham County Property Valuation Administrator website.

The home also has a heated infinity pool, outdoor kitchen, batting cage and indoor basketball court, according to its listing.

John Boc and Terri Allen bought the home in 2011 for $3 million, according to the PVA website.
