The lakeside Tennessee home of late country music superstar Johnny Cash has been destroyed in a fire.It seems odd to me that a wood preservative would be so highly flammable, that seems counter-productive somehow.
It burned down on Tuesday while renovations were being carried out for its new owner, Bee Gee Barry Gibb.
[. . .]
The agency said the fire spread quickly because construction workers had recently applied a flammable wood preservative to the exterior of the house during renovations.
After a few hours, little remained of the house except its stone chimneys.
