San José Firefighters rescue family pet, extinguish house fire

On Sunday, January 18th, 2015, at 1142 hours, the San José Fire Department responded to multiple reports of heavy smoke showing from a one-story residential structure at 2371 Sunny Vista Drive. Upon their arrival, San José Engine 10 confirmed a working fire with smoke and flames showing from the front of the home.

Firefighters immediately stretched an attack line into place making access to the seat of the fire through the front door while additional crews set about searching the structure for occupants. No one was home at the time of the blaze, but as firefighters worked to extinguish the fire a resident arrived on scene and informed crews that his miniature dachshund was in the house. Firefighters used a thermal imaging camera to locate the family pet hiding under a bed.

Five occupants of the home were displaced with the American Red Cross Silicon Valley assisting with clothing and shelter.

Assignment:

Battalion 10, Battalion 1, Med 30, 4B97
Engine 10, Engine 7, Engine 4
Truck 1, Truck 14, Squad 30
