that is all inside the wesh two mobile app. they drew a big crowd overnight as brevard county watched the destruction of an iconic mansion. alex villereal is live on the scene. the big question is what started this fire? alex: that is what everyone is waiting to find out. we know investigators will be out here as soon as the sun comes up to begin this investigation. fire crews are still here, they have been here throughout the night. they are working to put out hotspots here. any little areas that might be starting to catch fire again, so they can avoid any large-scale fire again. it is being blocked off with crime scene tape and that is to protect the investigation . and also to keep the area secure.
