Reality mansionA Beverly Hills firefighter who was injured while battling a blaze at a Beverly Crest mansion was in serious but stable condition, officials said Friday. 

The fireman was hurt when a beam fell on his head as more than 100 firefighters attacked the flames at the $19-million home on Beverly Park Way, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott.

The home was formerly owned by reality television star Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd and featured on the show “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

Although the blaze was in Los Angeles, firefighters from the Beverly Hills Fire Department aided in the effort, Scott said. 

The fire was extinguished in about an hour, after burning through parts of the roof. The cause was still under investigation, Scott said.
