BARRINGTON, Ill. - A massive fire tears through a mansion in Barrington on Tuesday morning while the homeowners are away.

The blaze was captured on cell phone video.

The Barrington-Countryside Fire Chief believes, part of the home was under renovation, and it appears the flames started in the garage area. An investigation is underway into the exact cause.

Firefighters had to deal with no fire hydrants in the area, and a long driveway.

No one was injured.
