(Reuters) - Firefighters were called to put out a fire Wednesday at the Chappaqua, New York, home of former President Bill Clinton and former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, police said.

There were no known injuries caused by the blaze at 15 Old House Lane, said Sergeant Arthur Mendoza of the New Castle Police Department, adding that he could not immediately provide more details.

The local Journal News, citing radio transmissions from the emergency services, said the fire was reported at 2:50 p.m. in a bedroom and that it was quickly extinguished. Reuters could not immediately confirm the report.

It was not immediately clear what caused the fire or whether the Clintons were home at the time. Mendoza referred further questions to the U.S. Secret Service. A spokesman for the agency could not immediately be reached.

The Clintons purchased the five-bedroom, 5,232-square-foot (486-square-meter) home for $1.7 million in 1999, the Journal News said. Chappaqua is about 40 miles (64 km) north of New York City.
