Winter Park, Florida -- Lightning from Tuesday night's storms sparked a fire at a 10,000-square foot manor home in Winter Park. Firefighters spent Wednesday morning walking around the mansion along Preserve Point Drive looking for hotspots.

The Fire Marshal was on the scene late Wednesday morning. He said the damage was so severe, no one other than firefighters would be allowed to go inside until structural engineers can figure out how to best deal with the collapsed roof.

"We don't know what's salvageable yet. So we're all pretty shell-shocked," said builder Hal George.

For those who have walked inside the multi-million dollar home Windsong, a luxury community in Winter Park, it's hard to believe it may have to be torn down.

"Like watching a piece of art go down in flames. It's a one-of-a-kind house," George said.

Tuesday night, the house was struck by lightning. It had been under construction for more than two years and was within 30 days of completion. There was no furniture inside, but the fire caused extensive structural damage.

"It's devastating just to see all that much work and heart and soul go into a project and have it come to this point," George said.

George is the builder and is friends with the owner. He said the house had marble floors, custom-made cabinetry and extensive, and very expensive, plaster work throughout all the walls and ceilings.

"They handmade the molds and did a phenomenal job of recreating that old European ornate look," George said.

Now it's looking like the French chateau-style home may have to be demolished and started from scratch. The owner of the home is Brett Moscovitz. He runs a surveying and mapping corporation in Winter Park.
