A $19 million mansion belonging to pornhub’s CEO, Feras Antoon has been set on fire by suspected arsonists.

Police said they were initially called when two people were seen trespassing on the property in Montreal’s Ahuntsic-Cartierville neighborhood.

Julien Lévesque, a media relations officer for Montreal Police, told VICE that the authorities found the property ablaze when they arrived.

More than 80 firefighters were called in and it took three hours to stop the fire. A nearby house was damaged in the process.

Mr Lévesque said the police officers who arrived at the property were able to see that the fire began inside the residence.

No arrests have yet been made and police said they will investigate what happened by analysing what remains of the building, CBC reported.

Mr Antoon, the CEO of Mindgeek which is the parent company of Pornhub, confirmed to VICE in a statement that a fire occurred at his residence over the weekend.

“The residence was under construction. I am grateful that my family and I and our neighbours are safe,” he said. He refused to comment further because of the ongoing police investigation.

Realtor Joseph Montanaro told CTV News that the damage was “very extensive” and “everybody is in shock.”
