DescriptionAUSTIN -- Ex-Gov. Dolph Briscoe has donated $100,000 to help repair his fire-gutted former residence.

Briscoe, who was governor in the 1970s, made the presentation today in Austin as part of the private effort to rebuild the devastated Governor's Mansion.

The June 8 fire has been ruled arson. So far no arrests.

The mansion was unoccupied and being renovated at the time of the early-morning blaze.

Texas first lady Anita Perry this week launched the fund for donations to help rebuild the 152-year-old structure.

Former Gov. Mark White and relatives of other ex-Texas governors, who support the rebuilding, were on hand for the presentation.
