There were no immediate reports of injuries, but photos and video showed extensive damage to the historic seaside mansion located under the Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridge.

The Hekimbasi Salih Efendi Mansion has stood on the shores of the Bosphorus Strait since the 18th century and is used to host weddings and concerts, according to the mansion’s website.
