Two-alarm fire displaces San José residents

On Monday, June 9th, 2014, at 4:35 PM, units of the San José Fire Department responded to reports of a balcony fire inside a condominium complex at 3269 Shadow Park Place near Highway 101 and East Capitol Expressway in East San José.

The company officer of Engine 16 advised all responding units that they could see a column of smoke while en route. Upon their arrival firefighters from Station 16 reported heavy smoke and fire showing from a balcony on the second floor with fire extending to the roof. A second-alarm was struck as the fire began to run the attic of the structure.

Firefighters deployed two aerial master streams and numerous hand lines to contain the fire to the original fire building. A small spot fire broke out on the roof of an adjacent building inside the same complex, but was quickly knocked down limiting any damage.

The fire was declared under control at 5:50 PM with crews remaining on scene for an extended period of overhaul. Unfortunately the fire destroyed at least two units displacing seven. Those left homeless were assisted by the Red Cross of Silicon Valley.

There were no reported injuries.
