EBO HILL MANSION
NBC NEWS -- A historic estate on Long Island was destroyed in a fire Monday night, according to authorities.
The Ebo Hill mansion, on Edgewood Avenue in Smithtown, was gutted in the blaze about 8 p.m., officials said.
A cause for the blaze wasn't immediately available, but the fire comes just weeks after a prospective owner told Newsday that he was going to restore the 11,000-square-foot home to "look like it did the day it was new." It's not clear if the sale had been completed.
