Saw images of the aftermath. Not surprisingly, there's nothing left but a pile of burnt wood and debris. The place literally burned to the ground. The sad part about it all is that they were only a few months away from completion, and I wouldn't be surprised if some people who have put their current homes up for sale and planned to move in there have now seen there future homes--and plans--destroyed.

Here's something weird about this: Just a day prior, a local TV station there had a news story on the place. There was some controversy brewing about its (very) close proximity to an historic cemetery, where some of the city's founders are buried.
