JUPITER, Fla. ' A home being built for Jack Nicklaus' son has been destroyed by fire.

The second floor fire started at about 5 a.m. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue spokesman Capt. Don DeLucia said the cost of the damage was unclear but that construction would have to restart from scratch. The cause of the fire was under investigation.
