Tertowie Mansion Fire

Tertowie Mansion, during and after the fire. What now?

A fire has ripped through 16th century Tertowie House gutting the interior and caving in the roof. At the height of the blaze 40 firefighters were in attendance. The cause of the fire is unknown but the property has been empty for 10 years having failed to find a buyer. An investigation is underway.
