    DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) Officials at a Dubuque museum say it could cost more than $1 million and months of work to recover from a December fire.

    Fire damage was minimal during the Dec. 14 fire at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, but there was extensive smoke and water damage to one of two primary buildings.

    John Oglesby, the museum's facilities manager, says a sprinkler system drenched an exhibit area and gift shop. It eventually entered a basement.

    The Telegraph Herald reports museum officials have asked for some financial support since insurance won't cover it all. Visitors can expect to see some evidence of the recovery effort in the months ahead.
