By The Associated Press
SULLIVAN — An overnight fire destroyed a building in a western Indiana city, gutting the structure that's adjacent to the community's fire headquarters and city hall, officials said.
The fire in the two-story commercial building was reported shortly after 3 a.m. Monday in the downtown area of the city of Sullivan, said Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom.
Crews remained at the scene just before 7 a.m. as heavy smoke from the blaze continued to blanket nearby areas in Sullivan, a city of about 4,300 residents that’s the Sullivan County seat.
The fire cut power to several nearby residents who live near the burning building, which is adjacent to the Sullivan City Hall and the city's fire department headquarters, WTHI-TV reported.
Sullivan is located about 30 miles (48 kilometers) south of Terre Haute.
