The Edinburg Fire Department believes the fire that destroyed the abandoned mansion of the late Mexican singer Joan Sebastian, was intentional.
The home is located at the corner of Jackson Road and Canton Avenue. According to authorities the fire started around 12 midnight. Investigators determined it was arson because the home had no water or electricity services and had been vandalized several times before.
The home is now considered a total loss. Investigators say the property has been vacant for at least 6 years. They say the investigation will take a couple of months but they are working hard to find the people who caused the fire.
