East San José Fire Destroys Mobile Homes, Abandoned Barn
On Monday, May 2, 2016, at 1350 hours, units of the San José Fire Department responded to multiple reports of an abandoned barn on fire with flames impinging on an adjacent mobile home community.
Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke and fire showing from an empty barn with fire spreading rapidly to two mobile homes located in the 400 block of Giannotta Way inside the La Buona Vita-Mobile Park. Crews attacked the barn fire and the burning mobile homes simultaneously with one aerial master stream used to knockdown the bulk of the fire in the barn.
The blaze was quickly upgraded to a 3rd alarm as firefighters worked to prevent flames from spreading to additional mobile homes. One occupant was rescued from her home and treated for smoke inhalation symptoms at the scene.
