Historic Main Line mansion destroyed by last week’s fire

    Wednesday’s fire at a historic Main Line mansion has destroyed the house.

    News helicopters captured the afternoon blaze that sent occupants running from the house to safety. A cause has not yet been determined.

    Out partners at PlanPhilly have more details on the property, built in Villanova in the ’20s. The property has changed hands a number of times since its design, and was most recently being rented after failing to sell last Spring.
