The former site of a longtime veterinarian business in southern Milpitas was destroyed in a fire over the weekend.

On Saturday at about 2:30 a.m., Milpitas Fire Department personnel responded to a reported structure fire at 1316 S. Main St. Arriving crews found a vacant, single-story commercial building engulfed with flames venting through its roof, fire reports state.

Due to the extent of the fire, it was quickly determined that the blaze would be fought from a defensive position on the exterior of the structure and no firefighters would enter the building, fire reports state.

It took firefighters approximately one hour to extinguish the blaze. There were no reported injuries.

As a result of the damage from the fire, along with the large volume of water required to extinguish the fire, the stability of the building was severely compromised, preventing firefighters from entering the structure, fire reports state. Firefighters remained on scene extinguishing hot spots. They were expected to enter the building to complete a final search once a structural building engineer has determined it is safe to do so.

Milpitas fire officials could not be reached for comment by press time about the cause of the fire or whether they believed it may have been set by an arsonist.

The razed building was the former site of the Milpitas Animal Hospital, which had been owned since 1968 by Dr. Myron Jorgensen — a veterinarian to countless dogs and cats for nearly five decades. Jorgensen retired in late 2013 and the business had remained vacant.
