A Silver Creek mansion was totally destroyed on Sunday by a fire that ripped its way though the brick and let it nothing but ashes.

The home located off Rockmart Highway near the Silver Creek Mini-Mart was reported just after 4 am on Sunday.

Firefighters took shifts to put the blaze out, but were not able to savage the home.

Investigators said it would take time before it was safe to return to the home to determine the exact cause.
