POST FALLS-- Kootenai County Fire has determined there is no evidence of cause in the fire that destroyed a Post Falls mansion.
An accelerant sniffing dog found petroleum products, which lab results determined to be lamp oil. The owners of the home had said they had several antique lamps at their home.
Officials say oil is not a fire accelerant and would not be used by someone trying to burn down the home.
The homeowners tried to save as many memories as possible as crews bulldozed the remains of the home Friday.
The cause of the house fire is officially undetermined and will remain that way unless new evidence comes forward. Officials are done investigating the scene.
Private security was left at the location for undisclosed reasons.

Real estate records show the mansion has been in foreclosure since last March and the Wallaces, who owned the home, stopped paying the mortgage in November 2010.
Court records show the Wallaces filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last august, the second bankruptcy case the family has opened in Kootenai County.
Pamela Wallace says she understands why people might think the timing of the house fire is suspicious but says because of the foreclosure, the insurance claim will go to the lender.
Police told the Wallaces they could return to the property early Friday evening.
