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.

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.
