A fire that broke out at former president and first lady Bill and Hillary Clinton's home has been extinguished, WNBC reported Wednesday.

Firefighters arrived on the scene of the Clintons' longtime home in Chappaqua, New York to fight a fire that has since been put out, the Chappaqua Fire Department told WNBC.

The Town of New Castle Police Department said no injuries were sustained by the fire. An ambulance on the scene left without transport.

Hillary Clinton's communication director Nick Merrill tweeted that the fire was in a building on the property used by the secret service, not the main residence.

Later, the Secret Service said in a statement that there had been a "small fire in the ceiling of the second floor in a detached structure located behind the Clintons' residence." It also confirmed that the Clintons were not on the property at the time.
