By vacant, do you mean gutted to the basic shell or do you mean that they simply stopped using it and left everything as was? If it was gutted under a building permit then I’d agree with the others. BUT, if the building was simply stopped being used, then the sprinklers would have to stay and be maintained.

When considering change-of-use, the most recent occupancy still prevails for determination so that may weigh in on the question.
