Firefighters were called to supermodel Claudia Schiffer’s home in English countryside on Monday, May 26 after a fire broke out in the building.

More than 50 emergency workers spent two hours at her home, battling to put out a fire at the German model’s mansion. She shares the home with moviemaker Matthew Vaughn and their three children.

The 16th century hall near Bury St Edmunds, in Suffolk, England suffered severe damage to outbuildings. However, the firefighters managed to stop the fire spreading to the main part of the house.

A range of one and two story outbuildings, believed to be used as storage areas, were turned into ruins and several of the roofs completely caved in.

A historic 35ft tall white-painted clock tower was also brought crashing to the ground.

It is not known if the family were at their 12-bedroom at the time.

Schiffer and Vaughn, who produced Guy Ritchie’s hit films Snatch and Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels paid around £5 million for the hall and its 40 acres of parkland in 2002.

The two married in a nearby church soon after buying the hall, and also held their wedding reception there.

 

 

 

 

Some pictures taken on the day of the fire show the model and her partner standing by and watching the firefighters battle the flames. A representative for the Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service told Britain’s Daily Mail, “A fire investigation concluded that it was started accidentally.”
