Former Ohio Home of First Lady Betty Ford Destroyed in Fire

Sunday, 08 Mar 2015 04:28 PM

The former home of first lady Betty Ford has been destroyed in an early morning fire in Ohio.

Fire officials in Maumee say the home once occupied by Ford and her first husband, William Warren, was destroyed in a fire that began early Saturday.

The Blade of Toledo reports that Ford and Warren lived in the house in 1942 and 1943 while she modeled and sold merchandise at a department store.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but the fire chief says investigators believe it began in the basement.

The chief says the fire engulfed the roof and floors, making the home a total loss. No occupants were inside.

Ford and Warren divorced after five years, and she later married Gerald Ford. She died in 2011.
