The Lake Whitney House Local Media Is Obsessed With May Be Set on Fire

Check out Channel 11's report on the doomed house.

If you watched the local news at all over the last week, you must have seen the breathless, helicopter-aided reports of the $700,000 luxury home falling bit by bit down a 75-foot cliff into Lake Whitney.

According to those news reports, the home's Florida-based owners first reported a fault line in the limestone cliff the home sits on in February and were forced to clear out and abandon the home because of safety concerns.

Now, the house is going to be demolished, either by knocking it over or burning the sucker down.

Mark Wilson, the chief deputy at the department says that as early as this afternoon the local fire department and the Army Corps of Engineers may oversee a controlled burn of the property to cut down on the amount of debris and to lessen cleanup costs.

"At this stage, there's not a lot of options they have, it doesn't seem like," he said, "because the ground is already separated they can't get any type of equipment in there to try to do some demolition, so this is probably one of their best options."

According to FOX 4, the homeowners are also considering a more traditional demolition.

There's no word yet on the exact time the fire or demolition will begin, but surely, the local news choppers will be there so you can see the whole thing go into the lake or up in flames.

Contact a local film studio, surely someone needs some cool stock footage.


Controlled burn??

The pool starts here. How many other houses get burned, and how many feet of the lake used to finally put it out.


Either way is moronic. Trash into the lake.

Here: advertise. Free building materials. As is. At your own risk.

Then put ppv web cams, and make a mint.


This should be on top things to do in Dallas this weekend.

$700K.  Charisse Tinsley last night on channel 4 said it was $300K.


Two Words:  Drone Strike.

Damn California transplants.


Before anyone else can get to this, I want to point out that this house is like this because of Obama and homosexuals.  Plus if people would have been allowed to carry AK 47s around this house at all times, this would not be happening.  Freaking libtards.
