Officials say 21 firefighters with Ocala Fire Rescue responded to the fire alarm at 2:06 a.m. and arrived within one minute to find smoke coming from the south end of the building.

Firefighters say  the flames began in a bin of mop heads from spontaneous combustion.

Owners say no one was inside at the time the fire started.
