Fire Damages President Bush's Former Home

Authorities are investigating an arson fire at the Texas home where former President Bush and his family lived in the late 1940s.

The Dec. 27 fire damaged the front-porch area of the house that sits behind the Presidential Museum and Leadership Library in Odessa.

It was moved there from its original nearby location in 2004.

The museum administrator says the damage will be repaired.

The single-story, 800-square-foot house was restored and eight months of work on it was completed in Dec. 2004.

According to the museum's web site, the Bushes, including the younger president Bush, lived in the home from September 1948 until April of 1949.
