A Missouri museum carrying historical manuscripts caught fire on Tuesday. The museum housed some of the historical artefacts from collector, David Karpeles, which included the first draft of Bill of Rights, the paper Einstein's E=Mc2 was written on and Noah Webster's first dictionary. Karpeles, who is currently in Santa Barbara, told local media that he was very nervous at the moment.
