LAKE WHITNEY, Texas -- A home dangerously dangling on the edge of a cliff in a Lake Whitney subdivision was set on fire Friday morning.

The home burned for about two hours, with some of the debris falling into the lake below. Much of the home collapsed in on itself before the flames went out.

Earlier this week the cliff the house sits on gave way underneath. Part of the house actually fell to the lake below a short time later. A giant crack first appeared in April, and the homeowners were told to move out.

The home is located about 35 miles northwest of Austin.
