Three displaced by greater alarm fire

On Monday, May 9, 2011 at approximately 7:00 AM, the San José Fire Department responded to a report of fire in a two-story residential structure at 498 South Fifth Street near San José State University.

Arriving crews confirmed a working fire in a Victorian style home housing multiple residents. As firefighters pursued an offensive strategy, attack lines were stretched and placed into operation on both the exterior and the interior of the structure.

Although fire heavily damaged a significant portion of the home, leaving three occupants displaced, firefighters were able to prevent the flames from completely destroying the structure. Over 60 firefighters worked to contain the blaze, minimize damage, and prevent the fire from spreading to adjacent structures.

There were no reports of injuries to civilians or firefighters.
