AUSTIN, Texas, June 13 (Reuters) - Crews set fire to a luxury Texas lake house on Friday left dangling about 75 feet (23 meters) on a decaying cliff that has been giving way underneath the structure, live video showed.

The $800,000 house on Lake Whitney, about 75 miles (120 km) southwest of Dallas, had been abandoned.
