Investigators today are continuing to probe the cause of a fire that destroyed a 20,000-square-foot mansion in the township, said Bloomfield Township Police Lt. Paul Schwab.
The blaze, which started early Saturday morning at the home on the 6000 block of Wing Lake Road, took two hours to bring under control. Investigators from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office are assisting Bloomfield Township authorities, Schwab said.
The home is owned by Linden Nelson, who along with mall developer Al Taubman and other investors debuted Raleigh Michigan Studios in the former GM Truck Product Center in Pontiac earlier this year.
No one was injured in the blaze and damage estimates were unavailable.
“It’s very early on,” Schwab said.
