Fire crews were at the scene in Royal Avenue shortly after 8pm on Tuesday.
Members of the group Occupy Belfast moved into the building earlier this year to protest against government cuts.
Royal Avenue was closed for a time while crews dealt with the fire.
A PSNI spokesperson said "Police attended a fire at a derelict commercial premises in the Royal Avenue area.
"There were no evacuations and no injuries in this incident."
The cause of the blaze is still being investigated and it is not yet clear what damage it has caused to the building. No one was inside at the time.
