A downtown Taylorville business is closed after part of its building collapsed over the weekend.

Our news partners at WAND-TV report the building, housing To the Moon Tattoos, partially collapsed Sunday morning. The facade came down spontaneously; Taylorville Fire Chief Mike Crews says it’s an old building.

No one was inside at the time and no one was injured. Investigators will be on scene this week to determine whether the building can be saved.
