Fire trucks and ambulances rushed to the White House after a prank call claimed the residence was on fire.

This incident is the latest in a series of dangerous swatting events against political officials.

The prank call was determined to be a false alarm, and President Joe Biden was not at the residence at the time. (Trending: Trump Responds To Biden’s Bombing In Yemen)

“Fire in the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,” a Washington, DC, dispatcher said.

“Someone who was reached at the callback number for the 911 report indicated they did not place it, a source told the Associated Press, indicating it was likely spoofed,” one report noted.

The call was traced to a spoofed phone number.

Similar swatting incidents have targeted other politicians and celebrities.
