The fire was on the second floor of a detached garage and spread to the attic, NBC New York reported.
Hillary Clinton’s communication director, Nick Merrill, said on Twitter that the fire was at a Secret Service facility on the property and the Clintons were not home at the time. He described the fire as small. "All is ok!" Merrill said in the tweet.
No one was hurt. An ambulance left the scene without transporting anyone, New Castle police said.
The Secret Service said an agency employee called the fire department at around 2:40 p.m. "to report a small fire in the ceiling of the second floor in a detached structure located behind the Clintons’ residence," and said fire extinguishers were used.
The fire department inspected the area to ensure the fire was out, the Secret Service said.
