Fire destroyed a campaign office of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in western Indiana early this morning.

Terre Haute Fire Department spokesman John Gardner says two people were inside when the fire broke out but escaped without injuries.

Gardner says nothing so far had indicated the fire was arson, but firefighters are investigating.

A volunteer firefighter spotted flames on the roof while driving by the office shortly after midnight. The roof of the one-story building partially collapsed and a part of the front wall collapsed on a parked car, which then caught on fire.

Clinton is battling Illinois Senator Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination. Both candidates have set up offices throughout Indiana as they vie for the state's 72 delegates in the May 6th primary.
