Crews Battle 3-Alarm Fire at Mansion in Southborough, Mass.

Fire officials are trying to determine what caused a 3-alarm blaze at a mansion in Southborough, Massachusetts.

The blaze was reported shortly after 7 a.m. Thursday near the area of 7 Wyndemere Drive. Fire officials said the flames started in a second-story bedroom and spread.

Authorities said it was the size of the house that posed a challenge for firefighters.

"The challenge is that it's a very large house and we have a limited number of staffing on duty so the crews did a great job initially coming in and knocking the fire down," said Southborough Fire Chief Joseph Mauro. "It's got an attic with a lot of insulation in there so that was the big concern—making sure the fire was knocked down before any damage spread to the rest of the house."

Authorities said the homeowners, who just moved in a few weeks ago, made it out safely and were not hurt.

Despite some damage, the fire does not appear to be suspicious.

The exact cause of the fire is under investigation.
