Fire tears through iconic Phoenix-area ‘Wedding Cake’ house
PHOENIX – A home known in metro Phoenix as the “Wedding Cake” was severely damaged by fire early Tuesday.
Rural Metro Fire said in a social media post that containing the blaze of the three-story house on Stage Coach Pass in Carefree near the Carefree Highway took crews from two cities.
The 6,000 square-foot house was empty – it was under renovation.
Crews from Cave Creek and Carefree made their way across steep terrain in darkness to reach the house.
ABC15 captured aerial coverage of the burned home.
The house, built in 1986, last sold in 2019 for $1.18 million, according to Maricopa County tax records, which listed Edward and Karen Carmines as owners.
No other details were immediately available.
