Machete wielding man starts garage fire

On Sunday, March 29, 2015 units of the San José Fire Department were dispatched to 1394 Mocho Court for a fire started in a one-story home by an armed resident.

San José police initially responded to the area after receiving multiple calls for a man wielding a machete and attacking an unoccupied vehicle. The subject then returned to his own home and began to burn items in his closed garage. Firefighters were called to the scene, but were unable to attack the blaze while police attempted to convince the man to surrender.

At one point during the standoff the subject attempted to put out the fire with a garden hose, but was unsuccessful. Eventually the man surrendered to police allowing fire crews to approach the home, force entry into the garage and quickly extinguish the contents fire.

There were no injuries and the man was transported to an area hospital for evaluation.

Assignment:

Battalion 1, Battalion 2, Battalion 10, Med 30
Engine 26, Engine 16, Engine 24
Truck 16, Truck 2, Squad 26
