Firefighters responded to a fire at the home of Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton in Chappaqua, New York on Wednesday, The Journal News reported.
Local police reportedly confirmed the fire, but declined to give details.
Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill tweeted that the fire was in a building not connected to the home, and that the Clintons weren’t there when it broke out.
This report is wrong, & creating much hysteria.
Yes, a small fire broke out in the @SecretService facility today on Clinton property, in a building not connected to their home. Fire was put out, local FD responded. The Clintons were not home.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the blaze remains unclear.
The Clintons bought the home at 15 Old House Lane in 1999 for $1.7 million.
