Video: Firefighters burn down former NFL star's mansion
The firefighters were using the deserted mansion as training
GRETNA, Neb. — A 14,000-square-foot palace built by a former NFL player has been burned to the ground as part of a firefighter training exercise.
The luxurious estate in Gretna, Nebraska, was home to ex-Buffalo Bills safety Rod Kush and was once worth $2.6 million.
But the 'finest mansion in all of Sarpy County' was set alight yesterday morning by the Gretna Volunteer Fire Department, after being overrun with mold.
