SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) - Investigators in northeast Kansas say a fire that destroyed a 9,000-square-foot home this week was intentionally set.

The owner of the secluded mansion near Lake Quivira in Shawnee was out of town in Colorado when the fire broke out Wednesday afternoon.

The Shawnee Fire Department said Friday someone had also stolen items from the house and vandalized it. Investigators did not specify how the fire was set.

KCTV reports (https://bit.ly/1pY8bWX ) the four-bedroom, eight-bath house sits on 15 acres and also has a pool, a greenhouse and a fish pond. The home had recently been listed for sale for $1.5 million, but the listing had been pulled and the house was not for sale at the time of the fire.
