Cash's house destroyed in a burning ring of fire

Officials investigate what caused a massive fire that destroyed the late Johnny Cash's mansion in Tennessee.

According to fire investigators, on April 10, 2007, flames spread quickly because of a wood preservative recently put on the house. Crews were renovating the home in Hendersonville, Tenn., for its new owner, Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees.

Gibb was planning to move in July after renovation was complete. Ten workers, who were inside, got out safely.

Johnny and June Cash lived in the home for 35 years until they died four years ago.
