The Chappaqua Fire Department confirms that a building is on fire on the Clinton property

Update: 1/4/2018, 12:45 p.m. est: The Washington Post is reporting that the building which caught fire housed agents for the Secret Service. Spokesman Joseph Casey said that fire extinguishers were used initially to put the blaze out.

“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.”

The cause of the fire is still not known, but a spokesman for Hillary Clinton said that neither Hillary nor President Clinton was at home at the time of the fire.

Update: 4:35 p.m. est: Sgt. Arthur Mendoza of the New Castle Police Department spoke with CBS to give an update about the fire that occurred at the Chappaqua home of President Bill and Hillary Clinton. He confirms that the fire department was able to be extinguished at 3:15 p.m.

The fire was not in the main house, and no real damage is evident from aerial photos taken of the building on the property. The building that had the fire is thought to be a guest house.

At this time, a spokesperson for Hillary Clinton has not made an official statement.


It has been confirmed that there is a fire on the Chappaqua, New York property of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Per Heavy, a fire started in a second-floor bedroom of the Clinton home, and at this time, the fire is said to be mostly extinguished. Heavy says that Kempter’s Fire Wire on Twitter is sharing up to the minute tweets about the status of the Clinton fire.

“Main body of fire knocked down. Crews checking for extension.”

Bill and Hillary Clinton purchased the home next door to their Chappaqua home in 2016 to enlarge their original home and create their Clinton Chappaqua compound.

ABC News says that police and firefighters are on the scene of the fire at the Clinton compound and that there were no injuries among people in the home or those putting out the blaze. At this time, there is no information about what started the fire at the home of former President Clinton and the former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. There is also no confirmation about whether or not Bill or Hillary Clinton were home in Chappaqua at the time of the fire.

More information will be added as it is available from the local Chappaqua police and fire department.
