A fire Wednesday evening destroys an abandoned building.

It happened just before 8 p.m. in the 1400 block of Lake Drive in Zanesville.

"It was fully involved when we got here," said Zanesville Fire Department Deputy Chief. "There wasn't much we could do with it, so we just put water on it."

The former commercial building was surrounded by brush and trees, causing more of a potential for the fire to spread.

Deputy Chief Stemm said they will continue to investigate the fire to find a cause.

Scanner traffic indicates witnesses saw several children around the building shortly before the fire.
