Fast moving vegetation fire erupts in San José

On Saturday, June 22, 2013 at 4:30 PM, fire fighters from the San José Fire Department, assisted by CAL FIRE, responded to the area of Capitol Expressway and Tuers Road for reports of a vegetation fire. Upon arrival the company officer of Engine 24 requested additional resources to deal with the blaze that had already become well-established along the Coyote Creek Trail.

Gusty afternoon winds carried embers across Capitol Expressway igniting a spot fire that quickly grew and spread south toward Singleton Road. As the fire spread fire fighters were forced to contend with exploding propane tanks used by the homeless living along the Coyote Creek.

Fire fighters were able to prevent the fire from reaching nearby homes while containing the blaze to approximately 10 acres.
