FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Fire has heavily damaged a northwestern Arkansas house once occupied by former President Bill Clinton.
Television station KHBS/KHOG reports (
) that one person was inside the Fayetteville, Arkansas, home when the fire was reported early Thursday but safely escaped the flames.
The Fayetteville Fire Department says the fire was contained to the carport area but the rest of the home sustained significant damage.
The home, built in 1957, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Adrian Fletcher Residence. Clinton lived there from 1973-1974 when he came to Fayetteville to work as a professor of law at the University of Arkansas before marrying Hillary Rodham Clinton.
An arson-related fire on Christmas Day 2015 damaged Clinton’s childhood home in Hope, Arkansas. It reopened to visitors seven months later.
