A fire broke out and was quickly extinguished Wednesday at a building on the property of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, New York, a town north of New York City. 

The fire was in a facility used by the Secret Service on the Clinton property in a building not connected to their home, Nick Merrill, a spokesperson for Hillary Clinton, tweeted. 

He said the Clintons were not home at the time. 

The fire was reported about 2:50 p.m. at 15 Old House Lane where the Clintons have lived for nearly 20 years after buying it for $1.7 million in 1999.

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.

Police said details would be provided by the Secret Service, but initial scanner reports said it was a bedroom fire and has been extinguished.

The driveway was blocked off by a New Castle (N.Y.) police car. At least three fire trucks and an ambulance had responded to the call.

The barriers put up along Old House Lane to reduce traffic while Hillary Clinton was running for president in fall 2016 are no longer there.

The main house, built in 1889, features five bedrooms over 5,232 square feet and a pool on its 1.1 acres.
