    The site of a $10 million, five-alarm fire that left Sunset Beach neighbors shocked has been placed back on the real estate market.

    The asking price for the now-empty lot ranges from $1,550,000 to $1,980,000.

    In May, firefighters worked to save the three-story home before it eventually collapsed. The blaze was ruled an accident, apparently started by a flaming briquette landing on the home's wooden deck. Nearby homes were also damaged.

    "Come build your ocean-front dream home," according to the lot's online listing. "Steps to the ocean, this is a rare opportunity to own on the beach in beautiful secluded Sunset Beach. Lot is ready for a single-family home."
