A second fire in two weeks at a commercial building on Florin Road is being called suspicious.

Fire personnel responded early Wednesday to Meat Outlet USA, 5858 Florin Road. Firefighters went inside the business to fight the fire and also went onto the roof.

When the roof began to collapse, crews were ordered to the ground and out of the interior. All firefighters were able to retreat to safety.

The fire was contained within 30 minutes, but not before the building suffered extensive damage, according to a press release from the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District.

The cause of the fire is under investigation but is considered suspicious because it is the second fire in less than two weeks at the business.
