Holy Smokes! Stately Wayne Manor burnt?

The Beeb reports that the mansion used as "Stately Wayne Manor" in the 1960s tv series of Batman (as well as in several movies -- like "Dead Again" -- being the stock mansion) has been 'gutted by fire'. But NBC-4 reports from Pasadena that it's Batman's neighbor whose house burnt down... and the mansion which turned to toast is one designed by famed African-American architect Paul Williams (no, not that Paul Williams!)

I think I'll trust the more local news source, this time. The Beeb's track record has been a bit spotty, of late.
