Vegetation Fire Burns Along Coyote Creek in Northeast San José
On Wednesday, September 9, 2015, at 1842 hours, San José Firefighters responded to reports of a fire behind the Riverbed Family Park, a mobile home community located at 1358 Oakland Road.
Firefighters arrived to find a fast moving fire burning in heavy brush. With difficult access and the proximity of the fire to structures additional companies were called in to assist in containing the blaze. Crews were able to knock down the majority of the fire in 90-minutes with the fire under control at 2101 hours.
Firefighters remained on scene throughout the night and much of the next day to conduct overhaul and monitor the area for any hot spots.
The cause of the fire was not immediately known, but the area along the creek is populated by the homeless who often use open flame to cook. Assignment:
