Over the weekend, ESPN announcer Mike Breen lost his home in Long Island to a massive fire. 

Breen's house caught fire on early Sunday morning. The Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department arrived at the scene as fast as they could, but the property was already engulfed in flames. 

Thankfully, no one was in the home when it caught fire. 

On Thursday, ESPN issued a statement on this heartbreaking situation. 

"Mike is a cherished member of the ESPN family and he knows he has our full support through this excruciating circumstance," ESPN's statement read. "We know the damage is devastating, and at the same time, we are grateful that he and his family are safe.”

Breen, 61, is one of the best play-by-play announcers in the industry. He does excellent work for ESPN and MSG. 

Basketball fans around the country are showing support to Breen and his family during this difficult time.

This situation remains under investigation.
