Small fire at Clintons' Westchester home
NEW YORK (FOX5NY.COM) - A small fire broke out Wednesday afternoon at a building used by the U.S. Secret Service on the Westchester County, New York, property owned by the Clintons.
The emergency call came in around 2:50 p.m. and the fire was out less than a half hour later, New Castle Police Sgt. Arthur Mendoza told Fox 5.
A Secret Service employee contacted the Chappaqua Fire Department to report the small fire, which was in the ceiling of the second floor of the detached building, according to Secret Service spokesperson Julia McMurray.
"Fire extinguishers were utilized to suppress the fire and members of the Chappaqua Fire Department responded and inspected the area above the fire to ensure it had been completely extinguished," McMurray said in a statement emailed to Fox 5.
Bill and Hillary Clinton were not at home at the time, McMurray said.
No one was hurt.
Video from SkyFoxHD showed firefighters working in the attic of a smaller structure adjacent to the main home.
The Clintons have owned the property in Chappaqua since 1999 when the former first lady began planning a campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in New York.
