     ALTAMONT, Ill. (AP) _ Authorities in the south-central Illinois
community of Altamont say a small fire at a community museum was
deliberately set during a burglary.

     Monday's fire at the Altamont Living Museum caused minor damage
to a doorway. No one was injured.

tells the Effingham Daily News ( ) that the
thieves got away with a small amount of cash.

     The museum is also a concert hall and theater.
