HOPE, Ark. (AP) — The childhood home of former President Bill Clinton has been closed as authorities investigate a suspected arson case.
Park superintendent Tarona Armstrong says the visitor center is open, but the home is closed until further notice. Park employees haven’t been allowed to enter it while investigators search the site.
