Montreal police are investigating what they believe to be an arson attack on a mansion that went up in flames Sunday night. The mansion belonged to Pornhub founder Feras Antoon.

After two men were spotted trespassing, police were called to investigate the residence. To their surprise, when they arrived, the property was already up in flames. Sitting on 1.4 acres of land, the property was under construction and listed for nearly $20 million,

It included eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and nine garages, according to the listing.

According to VICE, it took more than 80 firefighters three hours to put out the fire.

“Police officers who arrived on site were able to see that the fire began inside the residence. Earlier this morning… our arson squad from Montreal police took charge of the investigation. They were onsite this morning to analyse all the scene, meet some witnesses to try to understand what was the cause and the circumstances of the beginning of this fire,” Julien Lévesque, a media relations officer for Montreal Police told VICE.

In addition, Antoon - who is also CEO of MindGeek - released his own statement confirming the fire.

“Over the weekend, a fire occurred at my residence. The residence was under construction. I am grateful that my family and I and our neighbours are safe. Out of respect for the ongoing police investigation, I will not be commenting further,” he said.

Apart from Antoon’s wallet, luckily no one was harmed during the fire.
