Historic Manor owned by Austrian Hedgefund manager Michael Treichl and his wife Emma, has been destroyed by fire.<br />
<br />
Parnham House in Dorset, an historic Grade I listed Tudor mansion, has been gutted by fire as detectives launch an investigation into possible arson.<br />
<br />
Twenty fire engines rushed to put out the blaze near Beaminster, Dorset, in the early hours of Saturday morning.<br />
<br />
But an eyewitness said it looks like the entire roof is gone as the 16th century stately home continued to smoke more than six hours later.<br />
<br />
Detectives are now investigating the cause of the fire and a police spokesman said suspicious circumstances cannot be ruled out.
