Million-dollar mansion burns down and falls off a cliff

205 ratings | 127302 views
When the side of a cliff collapsed below this home, there was no way to save it. So authorities decided to burn it down so less rubble would fall into the ocean. The whole fire took approximately two hours, but we compressed the entire process to about five minutes.

How is it pollution? The furnishings and chattels were removed prior to the demolition by burning and fire is a completely natural element. So tell me, how is it pollution?

Bob, I have some good news and bad news for you. "Oh my God, what's the bad news?" "Your home fell off the cliff." "Oh dear God, what's the good news?" "It was already burned up anyways."

Only in Texas would they burn a house falling off a cliff and send the toxic material into the lake.

This house inTexas was collapsing due to a fault line, but all of a sudden it’s now on fire? I suspect arson by the owners so they can collect the insurance otherwise they were SOL!

Bob Warren (1 year ago)
That isn't the ocean. It is Lake Whitney in Texas and the house was built too close to the bluff to begin with. No engineering studies were done to see if the soft limestone would hold the house up. Too bad for the owners, but stupid to build on a cliff in Texas.

Why would anybody build on a cliff with erosion. Doesn't make sense. They didn't build on bedrock.

Why burn it? 1 It's bad for the environment (not that I care) 2: wastes the fire departments time. Just abandon it and take your stuff, and let it fall.

So the contractors who built this giant house on the edge of a cliff...... I'm sure they all said to themselves "oh yeah, this is perfectly FINE".

Yet stupid people keep building houses just feet from cliffs, lakes and oceans sorry i have zero sympathy for them, the people of this country have completely lost all common sense and its shows.

The land collapsed under the house and the only way to demolish it was to burn it.
Jimmy Guitar (2 years ago)
I wanna see the not-speeded-up version of this. Without the dramatic music.
PoppaBlue59 Kent (2 years ago)
This is at Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas. The house was emptied of belongings by the owners, and it was burned in an attempt to reduce the amount of debris that would eventually wind up at the dam. Notice the fire engine standing by on the road. Conventional demolition was considered to dangerous because of the impending collapse of the cliff face. As for the toxic smoke, it is a drop in a very large bucket when compared to those released by automobiles, tractors, and lawn mowers at the lake and surrounding area. I hope this clears things up a little. I am a retired firefighter, and I lived at that lake for quite a while.

Insurance doesn't pay for earth disasters, i guess. Before they bought the house they were told by geologists that it was perfectly stable... great geologists. Looks like the real estate company payed more to the geologist than this couple...

+Ronnie G You've never done any roofing work, I see...
Ronnie G (2 years ago)
How much tar and oil is in this building? Hardly any!
Xaiano (2 years ago)
Tars and oils are toxic to fish and aquatic life, burning them turns them into carbon dioxide, water and prevents them contaminating the water.
Zbriu (2 years ago)
Mythical? Do you think a house is only made of wood? Natural rubble can't burn but rubble from buildings contain all kinds of materials. It's not "real" natural rubble, i'll give you that, but it has isolation materials, all kinds of chemicals for wood treatment etc, did you ever checked the materials list to build a house? You will be amazed. As for the atmosphere, if you burn gasoline it will pollute the atmosphere but if you spill it on the ocean it will be worst. Burning is used to terminate all kinds of nocive materials or liquids. What's your problem anyway? I think you are being a bit picky
Ronnie G (2 years ago)
What are these mythical toxic materials, name some. If they are so toxic they are polluting the atmosphere by burning them.

PoppaBlue59 Kent (2 years ago)
The house was deliberately burned, by the fire department. You might notice a fire engine stationed on the road. The fact is that a fissure had opened up beneath it, and this house was going to collapse into that lake (not the ocean). Conventional demolition was to dangerous.
clemente miranda (2 years ago)
HELLO FOLKS, I'M A FORMER INSURANCE AGENT...HMMMM, HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS TO ME, I SEE ARSON TO COLLECT INSURANCE MONEY HERE....INSURANCE MAY DENY CLAIM IF OWNER IS FOUND GUILTY OF SUCH AN ACT, MAY EVEN FACE JUDICIAL SYSTEM FOR HEARING/QUESTIONING. GOOD LUCK..!!!

How come everybody is hating is family because they have a beautiful house? They were an elderly couple who worked hard for their money. Why be so nasty and jealous because somebody made a good living? If they stoles money yeah I would be next to you. But hard working people deserve what they work for. I feel bad for the house next door because it looks like a chunk of their land is going as well.
