WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Authorities say emergency responders were called earlier this month to the home where the son of Vice President Joe Biden has been living, two weeks before he was hospitalized during a family vacation.

An official with the Cranston Heights Fire Co. said Wednesday that the department received a call for help from Biden’s home on Aug. 1. His son, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, has been living at the home while a house he bought is being renovated.

Rickie Clark, a supervisor for the fire department, said the call for help was in reference to someone possibly having a stroke.


Beau Biden, who suffered a mild stroke in 2010, is undergoing treatment at a cancer center in Texas after becoming weak and disoriented last week while on vacation in Indiana.
