Courtesty redOrbit: Vet Finishes Spay Surgery in the Street. Posted on: Thursday, 11 October 2007, 21:00 CDT

PITTSBURGH - A Pittsburgh-area veterinarian was forced to complete surgery on a dog in the street after a fire erupted at his clinic on Thursday.

Officials say the fire erupted at the Jasmine Veterinary Hospital in Springdale around noon just as Dr. Mark Jasmine was spaying a dog.


Jasmine, whose family lives on the top floor of the building, rushed to get his children out of the house. Then he removed the dog and cat that were in the clinic and completed the surgical procedure outside.

The fire has been controlled and officials say no one was injured in the blaze.

Good thing that everyone and every animal got out. Also a good thing that the veterinarian decided to finish the spay, even if it was in the streets (not too sanitary, but the dog lived).
