The building was an unoccupied office building.

Hannibal fire officials say they received the call just before 10:30 p.m.

Palmyra fire officials say crews from Hannibal, Palmyra, Canton, and Quincy all responded to the scene. The fire occurred above the sprinkler system in the building and ladder trucks were needed to put it out.
