Historic New Orleans mansion lost to fire

Garden District mansion gutted by fire

New Orleans lost a real gem today.

A fire, which started in the attic, tore through the stunning green and white Garden District mansion that graces the corner of Chestnut and Philip.  WGNO reporter Deepak Saini, who was on scene, told me 5 generations of the same family have lived in that very home!

Thankfully, a neighbor ran inside to save some paintings, photos and other prized possessions. But that’s probably about all that’s left.  Between the fire, smoke and water damage, the mansion will likely have to be gutted. I can only hope the owners can preserve some of the historic touches and that beautiful facade.

I’m saying a prayer for their family tonight!
