Smoke rises from a house deliberately set on fire, days after part of the ground it was resting on collapsed into Lake Whitney, Texas June 13, 2014. Building crews set fire to the luxury lake house left dangling about 75 feet (23 meters) on a decaying cliff that has been giving way underneath the structure. REUTERS/Brandon Wade
