    Holy smoke & flames BATMAN!

    Holy inferno, Batman: Wayne Manor burns
    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) Stately Wayne Manor is no longer.
    A Wednesday night fire gutted a Tudor style mansion that served as the home of Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, in the 1960's Batman television series, said Lisa Derderian, a spokeswoman for the Pasadena Fire Department. It was being remodeled by the owners, she said.

    "It was a fully engulfed inferno, for lack of a better term," Derderian said. TV footage showed flames leaping high into the night sky.

    Sixty to 70 firefighters worked hard to prevent embers from igniting brush behind the home, which is in the city's Arroyo district, Derderian said. A police helicopter hovered above the site to search for flare-ups, she said.

    "There's a very large brush area behind that residence," Derderian said. "It had the potential to turn into a very volatile event if any wind conditions were prevalent."

    Fire crews from Pasadena, Burbank, Glendale and the city and county of Los Angeles were on scene, she said.

    The home on South San Rafael Avenue was 16,000 square feet and sat on 5 acres of land, according to an article this week in the Los Angeles Times.

    The home also was used for filming other TV shows and films including Dead Again (1991), which starred Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh, according to the Pasadena city website.

    Several years ago, the house was the showcase for the city's annual upscale home tour, Derderian said.

    He had repellent for sharks and manta rays and many other things but no fire repellent spray. Poor Batman. Probably pulled up to his house, saw the damage and an action bubble that read "Burned!" popped up.

    imagine that. Batman can fend off bad guys and save cities, but he can't save his own house.

    FYI, it turns out this was NOT the mansion used in the TV series. That one is down the street. The one that burned was used in "one of the Batman movies", but not the series.

    why do I feel like Morrigoon, it's a shame it burnt down, but things can be rebuilt. It wasn't the house used in the tv, which is more historical than if it were in the Batman & Robin movie.. just sayin..

    Uh-oh. Coincidence? I think not! Better start stocking up on tuna nets lest they expand their reign of terror!
