Fire at The Yard in South Austin engulfs HQ of Icon, maker of 3D-printed homes

The South Austin headquarters of a startup that has garnered global attention for its 3D-printed homes was engulfed in flames in the early morning hours after Thanksgiving. Two buildings have been deemed "a total loss" by the fire department. The company, along with partner homebuilder Lennar, is in the midst of proving the new technology in a largely 3D-printer-built neighborhood near Austin.
