AUSTIN - Investigators are sifting through the rubble of the Governor's mansion in Austin trying to find clues to catch an arsonist.

The 152-year-old mansion in Austin burned sunday morning.

A national arson investigation team has been called in, along with canines.

The trained dogs are searching the debris for signs of a fire accelerant while investigators look through hours of security video to identify the arsonist.

The state fire marshal says they are also checking out a number of tips from people who called into their hotline.

The mansion had been undergoing a 10-million dollar renovation.
