Two-Alarm fire destroys San José apartments

Units of the San José Fire Department were dispatched to a two-story apartment building at 3860 Barker Drive on the city's west side after receiving reports of a vehicle fire endangering the structure at 1:50 pm on Saturday, September 3, 2005.

The first unit on scene discovered a fully involved van in the front driveway of the building with fire having already spread to the structure. Evacuations and a preliminary search were immediately initiated, while a second-alarm was called for a rapidly spreading attic fire.

By the time the fire was declared under control at least four adults and one child had been displaced due to heavy fire, smoke and water damage throughout much of the second story of the structure. There were no reports of injuries and the fire was contained to the single structure and vehicle.

First-alarm units that responded to this incident were San José Fire Department Battalion 10, Engine 10, Truck 14, Light Unit 14, Engine 4, Truck 4, Rescue Medic 4, Med 30, and Battalion 1. The second-alarm assignment consisted of Engine 7, Engine 15, Truck 9, Light Unit 9, Air Unit 6, and Battalion 13.
