An overnight fire in Waukesha County leaves nothing but a pile of rubble behind at a historic building.

Nobody was hurt, but the structure which was part of the Nashotah Episcopal Seminary was destroyed.

The fire broke out around 12:30 a.m. Friday morning.

The two-story house was engulfed in fire.

Investigators said that nobody currently lives in this house, a historic building set in the heart of the Nashotah House Episcopal Seminary.

The seminary was founded in 1842.  It covers 365 acres of land, nestled along the shore of upper Nashotah Lake.

The house specializes in the training of missionaries.
