The New Castle, New York home of Bill of Hillary Clinton suffered a fire today. No injuries were reported, and it appears no members of the Clinton family were home at the time.
The fire apparently started in a bedroom.
There were some reports online that the house that caught fire was the second home the Clintons purchased last year, located next door. That does not appear to be the case. Reports say the fire was in the main Clinton home that they have owned since 1999. The second home was purchased last year by the Clintons, in anticipation of Hillary winning the Presidency, and was supposed to be used by the Secret Service. It is unclear what it is being used for now.
Police in New Castle, New York, have confirmed a fire at the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, a town north of New York City.
Police declined to give further details on the fire at 15 Old House Lane where the Clintons 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 fall 2016, the former president and past presidential hopeful bought the four-bedroom house next door, at 33 Old House Lane, for $1.16 million.
Twitter lit up (pun intended) to joke about the blaze after it was learned that there were no injuries.
Here are tweets providing some updates on the incident.
