Vegetation Fire Burns Along Coyote Creek Trail in South San José
On Thursday, June 25, 2009, at 1400 hours, firefighters from the San José Fire Department, CAL FIRE, Santa Clara County Fire Department and Milpitas Fire Department responded to a vegetation fire burning along the banks of Coyote Creek near Silver Creek Valley Road and Coyote Road in South San José.
Crews on the ground were assisted by CAL FIRE air resources, including a helicopter and air tankers, as the blaze consumed four acres of trees and dry brush. It took 55 firefighters nearly three hours to control the fire with one CAL FIRE firefighter transported to a local hospital to be treated for heat exhaustion.
No structures were damaged and crews remained on scene into the evening to deal with any hot spots. Are you a member of the fire service?
