Early morning fire destroys vacant San José warehouse
On Wednesday, January 14th, 2015, at 0340 hours, San José Firefighters responded to reports of fire inside a vacant commercial structure located at the the corner of 380 Terraine Street and Bassett Street.
Upon arrival crews were confronted with a well-involved structure with heavy fire and smoke showing from throughout the building.
Within minutes the roof collapsed keeping crews at bay as companies established a defensive attack from three sides of the building.
Aerial master streams were able to hit the vast majority of fire without putting crews inside the structure due to the danger of additional collapse.
Firefighters were able to contain the blaze to the building of origin with the majority of the fire extinguished by 0638 hours.
