Firefighters were able to put out the flames within about 20 minutes but are calling the damage a total loss.

“This is part of the redevelopment coming to downtown Stockton. I think this building was already slated to be torn down so I think this will be the final straw for this nice old Victorian building,” Battalion Chief Rck Stubstad said.
