WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Fire caused extensive damage to a Wilmington mansion Tuesday morning.

Workers on a dock noticed flames coming from a home in the 2600 block of Middle Sound Loop Road around 8:30.

Firefighters were able to contain the blaze within an hour and a half.

No one was home at the time, but a neighbor was able to get inside to help the homeowner's pets.  A black and white Brittany Spaniel, named Lady, ran away.  If you see her call (910) 619-8008.

There is no word on the cause of the fire at this time.
