Two-Alarm fire damages San Jose home

On Saturday, January 29, 2010 at 8:05 AM, units of the San Jose Fire Department were dispatched to calls reporting a fire in a single-story, single-family dwelling located at 1820 Foxworthy Avenue. Initial reports to 9-1-1 described heavy smoke and flames seen with residents forced to escape the blaze by jumping from a bedroom window.

Crews were able to contain the blaze to the original fire building with the fire being declared under control at 9:37 AM. One neighbor was transported to a local hospital for smoke inhalation, but there were no other injuries to civilians or firefighters reported.

Units working this incident included Engine 9, Truck Company 9, Engine 17, Truck 13, Engine 13, Engine 6, Engine 4, Engine 31, Air Unit 31, Med 30, Battalion 13, Battalion 10, Battalion 1, and the Department Safety Officer.
