UPPER EAST SIDE — A fire broke out at a lavish East 84th Street townhouse early Tuesday that took firefighters more than three hours to bring under control, the FDNY said.

The blaze started about 2:25 a.m. inside 7 E. 84th St., near Fifth Avenue, which was unoccupied and under construction at the time, according to fire officials.

About 138 firefighters worked to bring the blaze under control at 5:55 a.m., the FDNY said. No one was injured.

The building is a 13,000-square-foot single-family home with eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a wine cellar and a private garage. It sold for $27 million in 2016, The Real Deal reported.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation, the FDNY said.
