Fire Dept Claims Charred Remains, Melted Memory Cards & Hard Drives Found At Clinton Fire
UPDATE: “I saw smashed up hard drives, melted memory cards and the charred remains of paper scattered all over the room and immediately knew the fire must have started there,” a Chappaqua Fire Department source told local news reporters, explaining that the house fire was “put out by Secret Service agents” before the Fire Department arrived.
CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A fire broke out at a building on the Chappaqua property of Bill and Hillary Clinton Wednesday.
Crews were called to 15 Old House Lane around 2:50 p.m.
The Clintons were not home at the time and no one was hurt, CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported.
The flames started in a converted red barn behind the Dutch colonial the couple bought in 1999. The barn was said to be a facility used by the United States Secret Service.
The fire was under control about a half hour later.
The Secret Service issued a statement Wednesday night, calling it a “small fire in the ceiling of the second floor in a detached structure located behind the Clintons’ residence.”
The was no word on what sparked the flames
