San José Fire douses garage fire

On Sunday, November 16, 2008 at 8:48 a.m. units of the San Jose Fire Department responded to multiple reports of a garage fire in a single family dwelling at 5309 Herbert Drive in the city's Cambrian Park neighborhood.

Upon their arrival firefighters discovered a well involved garage with heavy smoke and flames showing from a single-story structure. The first units on scene initiated an aggressive fire attack and search of the residence. All occupants were confirmed to be out of the home and firefighters launched fire suppression efforts.

Firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to an adjacent exposure while also achieving a knockdown on the fire within a matter of minutes. One firefighter received a minor burn and was treated at the scene, while at least one resident was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries.

Units working this incident included Engines 209, 13, 17, and Trucks 9 and 13. The incident commander was Battalion 13 (BC Jeff Clet).
