Fire breaks out in guest house at Bill and Hillary Clinton's home

Fire breaks out in guest house at Bill and Hillary Clinton's home

A town official says a short in a bathroom fan apparently caused the minor fire this week at a NY property owned by Bill and Hillary Clinton.

"No one's home", a firefighter on scene replied when asked if anyone was present at the house.

The former first couple bought the home before Hillary Clinton's successful 2000 run for a US Senate seat.

He said the small fire burned a hole in the bathroom ceiling of the facility, which is used by the Secret Service, at 15 Old House Lane, in Chappaqua, N.Y. The Chappaqua Fire Department declined to comment.

At least three firetrucks and an ambulance responded to an emergency call from the house, the Journal News reported.

She subsequently expanded her portfolio by buying a neighboring house - now her main home - in August 2016 in anticipation of making it a second home when she became president.

Neither Bill nor Hillary were home at the time of the fire, with their spokesman Nick Merrill keen to play down the news reports on the severity of the incident. A little after 4 p.m., an electrician's truck pulled into the compound.
