January 3, 2018

NEW CASTLE – A fire broke out today at a building on the Clintons’ property in Chappaqua and was quickly extinguished.

The small fire started in the second-floor ceiling of a facility used by the Secret Service, which is in a detached structure behind the Clintons’ home, the Secret Service said in a statement.

The fire was put out by fire extinguishers, and firefighters inspected the area to ensure it was completely out, the Secret Service said.

The Clintons were not home at the time of the fire, Nick Merrill, a spokesman for Hillary Clinton, tweeted.

The fire was reported about 2:50 p.m. at 15 Old House Lane, where former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton have lived for nearly 20 years after buying it for $1.7 million in 1999.

Barclays has apologised for charging customers double when they used their bank cards.

The bank said the duplication payments across an undisclosed number of accounts had been caused by a ‘small technical glitch’.

It said the problem had now been fixed and insisted no customer had been left out of pocket.

However frustrated customers said they were ‘worried’ the duplication of deducted payments had happened again.

A similar problem hit the bank in October 2015 and 2016.
