Fire Chars 114 Acres in Hills East of San Jose
On Saturday, July 30, 2016, at 1725 hours, firefighters from CAL FIRE, Spring Valley Volunteer Fire Department and the San Jose Fire Department responded to a wildland fire in the hills east of San Jose.
The blaze started near 5000 Sierra Road after machinery caught fire and spread to dry vegetation. As crews began to arrive in the area the fire had spread to approximately two acres with a moderate rate of spread in light, flashy fuels.
CAL FIRE airtankers and helicopters worked with crews on the ground to contain the fire that eventually burned 114 acres. By 2056 hours the fire was 75% contained with the threat to structures in the area mitigated. Are you a member of the fire service?
