STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Investigators say a fire that destroyed a medical office housed in a 120-year-old home in Stamford was likely not arson.

Lt. Diedrich Hohn tells The Stamford Advocate (https://bit.ly/1seJKxD ) that an accelerant-sniffing dog investigated the scene didn’t find any evidence suggesting that the fire was intentionally set.

Fire crews were alerted to the blaze around 5:45 a.m. Tuesday. Firefighters arrived to find the front of the building fully engulfed with flames shooting as high as 20 feet above the roof.

Property owner Dr. Jeremy Bier says the structure is likely a total loss.

Chief Fire Marshal Charles Spaulding says he hopes the cause of the fire will be determined by the end of the week.
