Fire at Bill and Hillary Clinton property fuels comical Twitter flurry


A fire reportedly broke out at the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, New York Wednesday afternoon, but was quickly extinguished and no injuries were reported. It was not clear whether the Clintons were home at the time the fire occurred.

New Castle Police reportedly confirmed that the fire was on the couple’s “main property,” and not at the house next door, which they purchased in 2016.

NBC News stated that aerial images appeared to show activity by the fire department focused on a second, smaller dwelling at the rear of the main house.

Reports have stated that the fire broke out on the second floor, and some reporters have claimed it was in a spare bedroom that was being used as an office, but that is unconfirmed.

The lack of information over the exact details of the fire has only fueled speculation, and Twitter has erupted in a flurry of comical remarks over the incident, as many users are joking that “evidence” was being burned.

The Clintons purchased the five-bedroom, 19th-century house for $1.7 million in 1999. In 2016, prior to the presidential election, they bought a four-bedroom house next door for $1.16 million.
