Neubauer said about 10 trucks were part of battling the blaze, including a ladder truck that is still putting hot spots as of Friday morning.

No injuries were reported and no one was believed to be inside, Neubauer added.

The building is considered a write-off, and the remaining parts of the structure will have to come down.
