Security system on the fritz during fire at Gov's mansion

Does this Texas tale sound just a tad fishy to anyone else? Last week an arsonist set an early morning fire at the Texas Governor's mansion. The mansion was unoccupied because it was undergoing renovations. News reports said that a new sprinkler system had been at the top of the list of renovations, yet eight months into the project, that task had not been completed. In this report, we learn that the security system that protected the mansion (and was monitored by guards on site) hasn't been working lately.
