INDIAN HILL, OH (FOX19) -

Owners of an Indian Hill mansion that went up in flames one year ago are now seeking nearly $60 million from their insurance company.

Jeffrey and Maria Decker's lawsuit states Chubb National Insurance Company failed to honor claims and therefore breached the insurance contract.

The Deckers claim damage from the fire should have been fully covered in their insurance policy with Chubb National. The suit was filed earlier this month in the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas.

Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire, which nearly destroyed the 22-room, 10,000 square foot mansion.

Firefighters estimated the flames reached more than 30 feet high and smoke could be seen from as far away as Milford and Loveland.

Tanker trucks brought in thousands of gallons of water but it was too late. When the flames were out, only the ashes of a $4 million mansion remained.
