TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Fire destroyed a campaign office of presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton in western Indiana early Friday.

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

Gardner said nothing so far had indicated the fire was arson.

"But we're doing a full investigation on it like any other commercial structure fire," he said.

Former President Clinton stopped briefly outside the burned building Friday on his way to a campaign speech in the small city of Clinton about 20 miles north of Terre Haute.

Clinton laughed when asked whether the fire was a bad sign for his wife's campaign. "No, I think this is a good omen," he said. "We'll rise from the ashes like the Phoenix."
