Dr. Mark Jasmine, owner of Jasmine Veterinary Hospital in Springdale Borough, Penn., had to finish a dog spay surgery in a parking lot after a fire erupted at his clinic on Thursday, Oct. 11, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
Jasmine, whose family lived on the second floor of the building, had already completed a cat spay surgery and was in the middle of spaying a dog when his three sons, ages 3, 4 and 8, alerted him of the fire.
After evacuating the building with his sons, the cat and dog, Jasmine finished the spay surgery on a makeshift operating table in the parking lot of an auto repair shop next door, the newspaper reported.
No person or animal was reported injured. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Jasmine had operated the clinic for about 20 years.
