East San Jose strip mall destroyed by fire
Shortly before 5:00 a.m., Sunday, February 18, 2007 units of the San Jose Fire Department responded to a report of fire in a multi-unit, single-story, concrete tilt-up strip mall at 1969 Tully Road on the city's southeast side.
First due Engine 16 arrived on scene to find heavy smoke conditions from the front of the structure. A second-alarm was immediately called due to the rapidly deteriorating conditions. Crews laddered and ventilated the structure while additional companies entered the interior of the building and began to pull ceiling in an attempt to extinguish fire that had extended into the attic.
As the fire spread throughout the building crews were ordered to vacate the roof and interior to assume defensive operations. A third-alarm was called only minutes later bringing the total number of firefighters on scene to approximately 80.
The bulk of the fire was knocked down approximately 45 minutes into the event with the aid of three elevated master streams from Trucks 2, 3 and 18. There were no injuries reported.Are you a member of the fire service?
