A massive house fire destroyed the Long Island home of Mike Breen, ESPN’s lead NBA play-by-play man and the voice of the Knicks for 30 years.

No one was home at the time, and no injuries were reported, according to TMZ. The blaze is under investigation.

Firefighters responded to the house fire in North Hills around 4 a.m. Sunday, the Manhasset-Lakeville fire department said. But the home was already in bad shape when smoke-eaters arrived.

“Ultimately, heavy machinery was called in to access parts of the home which were inaccessible by crews due to structural collapse,” the M-LFD said.

The fire was not extinguished until around 2 p.m.

Breen, 61, joined WFAN as a radio play-by-play on Knicks games in 1992. He rose to become ESPN’s go-to guy for big NBA games, and he’s called the NBA Finals since 2006.

Breen’s Hall of Fame career includes several iconic calls, including LeBron James’ game-saving block in the 2016 Finals and Steph Curry’s near halfcourt buzzer-beater against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
