The Texas Department of Public Safety is releasing snippets of video that show a possible suspect in the June fire at the Governor's Mansion. The video shows a man walking on the sidewalk behind the Austin mansion before the blaze. About three minutes later, another video clip shows a man running from the mansion. Lieutenant Alvin Alexis with the Texas Rangers says investigators aren't sure if it's the same man in both snippets.

They're seeking the public's help identifying the figures in the video, which is posted on the DPS Web site.

The June 8 fire severely damaged the 152-year-old building and is believed to be arson. Gov. Rick Perry and his family were not living at the mansion because the home was undergoing renovation. No one was injured.
