A fire broke out Wednesday at property owned by Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, N.Y., confirmed by New Castle police. The flames erupted just before 3 p.m. in the ceiling of the second floor in a Secret Service structure behind the Clintons’ home, a Secret Service spokesman told Fox News.
The building was not connected to the home, and the Clintons were not there at the time of the fire, according to Hillary Clinton Communications director Nick Merrill.
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.
All is ok!https://t.co/fXnbqtLb2K

Police declined to give further details on the fire at 15 Old House Lane where Bill and Hillary Clinton have lived for nearly 20 years after buying it for $1.7 million in 1999.
Scanner reports said it was a bedroom fire and has been extinguished.
The house, built in 1889, features five bedrooms over 5,232 square feet and a pool on its 1.1 acres.
In August 2016, the former president and past presidential hopeful bought the four bedroom house next door, at 33 Old House Lane, for $1.16 million. In October, they got in trouble for not having a permit for a kitchen renovation and filling in the in-ground pool, according to ZeroHedge, who also share the following video, revealing the Clinton’s house in Chappaqua on Old House Lane.
