Demolition crews burned down a luxury house that had been left dangling 75 feet above Lake Whitney in Texas when a decaying cliff gave out underneath the abandoned structure.

After a planned burn where crews set fuel-soaked bales of hay at strategic points throughout the house, most of the structure was reduced to ashes or plunged to the lake's coast within an hour of the fire being lit. (Reuters)
