Clinton's Boyhood Home Gutted by Fire

APRIL 5, 2004 - Posted at 7:57 a.m. CDT

 

HOT SPRINGS, AR - Fire officials in Hot Springs say a home that Bill Clinton lived in as a youth was badly damaged by a fire last night.  Officials say the fire started in a car engine in the garage at 213 Scully Street and quickly spread to the rest of the house.  The fire department received the call around 9 p.m. and the fire was extinguished about thirty minutes later.

Clinton was born in Hope, but he moved to Hot Springs in 1953 and graduated from high school there.

The home that burned was one his family lived in during his early years in Hot Springs.

Clinton's original home in Hope is now a museum.  Another home in Hope in which he lived drew no bidders in an on-line auction.  The 950-square-foot home was offered for ten days.  The minimum opening bid was $200,000.
