A 10,000-square-foot home in Hall County burned to the ground Monday night.
The house belonged to Philip Wilheit, a businessman and former campaign manager for Gov. Nathan Deal, Channel 2 Action News reported.
“This was his dream home,” a neighbor told Channel 2.
The property was a $2 million loss in part because the nearest hydrant was a half mile away.
Firefighters had to use a drop tank to put out the flames.
