South Placer firefighters, along with several neighboring fire departments, battled a fire Sunday night at a large home in Granite Bay, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Department.

The 7,000-square-foot home is in the 5900 block of Via de la Rosa, a department dispatcher said. Officials with the South Placer Fire District were not immediately available to provide more details, but Fox40 reported that crackling noises prompted the 12 people inside the mansion to call 911 around 5 p.m.

Everyone was able to safely get out of the home.

Twenty-seven firefighters fought the blaze at the mansion, which is valued at around $3 million, the Fox40 report said.
