Firefighters are busy tonight trying to contain a huge blaze that has struck a Beverly Hills mansion—one that just might look familiar to you.

The manse is the former home of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump.

Yes, the same house in the opening credits of the show and also where her daughter Pandora got married.

Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department said that the fire was reported around 6:30 p.m. Fire officials requested additional units within minutes of arriving to the location. It was stated that smoke was billowing from at least three sections in the home's roof.

According to the LAFD Alert account, "Over 100 LAFD Firefighters maintain aggressive attack. Fire not extinguished but contained to structure. No injury."

Luckily, shortly afterward, the fire officials released another alert sharing that the fire was reduced down, "KNOCKDOWN: Over 100 FF in just over 1 hour. No injury."

Vanderpump sold this house in September and made a home out of a smaller estate, but neighbors and costars Dr. Paul Nassif and Adrienne Maloof were close to the scene.

"At home with the family and smelled smoke. The house across the street from us is on fire. All of us here are OK!," Nassif tweeted. He then confirmed to fellow housewife Kyle Richards that it was "sadly" Lisa's old house.

"Thanks for your concern everyone," he said. "It looks to have been just the interior of the house and the BHFD hasn't gotten it under control."

UPDATE: Erik Scott, spokesperson for LAFD, tells E! News that a portion of the roof and portions of the floors collapsed due to the fire. One firefighter was injured and transported to the hospital.

As for reports that the fire spread to neighboring homes, Scott says "the fire was contained to the residence of origin. Firefighters worked aggressively to ensure the flames did not spread to near by residences or thick brush." He could not confirm/deny or comment as to whether any of the near by homes were evacuated.
