Conspiracy theorists are buzzing about the news of a fire in Bill and Hillary Clinton’s New York home. The blaze was reported on Wednesday, Jan. 3.
Reporters later learned that the fire originated from a secret service structure that was detached from the main home. No one was harmed in the fire.
Initial reports included speculation that the call was made from inside the home.
However, neither Bill nor Hillary was on the property at the time of the fire. It’s not clear who originally reported it.
The fire team responded quickly to the house fire. The report came in at 2:51 p.m. and the blaze was extinguished by 3:17 p.m.

According to Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill, everything is OK on the property. He tweeted shortly after the incident to reassure the public and the media.
Bill and Hillary Clinton have been spending the bulk of their time at the Chappaqua, New York, home since 2001 when Bill Clinton left the White House.
The two bought the property in anticipation of Hillary’s successful 2000 senate run.
They purchased the property in 1999 for $1.7 million. They also acquired the home next door for $1.16 million last year.
Many conspiracy theorists are drawing significance to the fires at the Clinton estate, saying that it might be a part of some cover-up.
Some are even suggesting that the fire may have been a result of someone trying to burn evidence.
These theorists are drawing a connection from this fire to some of the scandals that have involved the Clintons.
They are convinced of her corruption and think that the fire is just another piece of the puzzle.
But with the cause of the fire still unknown, these rumors have continued to circulate.
Until we learn more, there is no way to discredit those who say these are suspicious circumstances.
Regardless, we’re glad to hear that no one was injured in the fires. The fire department responded quickly and had the fire extinguished in mere minutes.
