San Jose's Bravest tackle two-alarm structure fire
On Friday, February 4, 2011 at 6:20 AM, units of the San Jose Fire Department responded to reports of a fire in a two-story, multiple-family dwelling at 794 Warring Drive on the city's south side.
Arriving firefighters discovered a rapidly spreading blaze that appeared to have broken out in a first-floor apartment extending to the second story and into the attic space of a fourplex. Flames from the original fire building impinged on an adjacent structure, but firefighters were able to protect the exposure from being seriously damaged.
Incident Commander Steve Alvarado struck a second alarm to summon additional firefighters to contend with the stubborn blaze. At one point crews were forced to vacate a portion of the structure's interior due to the intensity of fire in the unit of origin.
One firefighter was treated for minor injuries and one civilian, a resident, was transported to a local hospital for an unknown condition.
Units working this incident included Engine 12, Engine 13, Truck 13, Battalion 13, Engine 17, Truck 35, Rescue Medic 35, Med 30, Battalion 1, Truck 9, Light Unit 9, Battalion 21, Engine 9, Engine 22, Rescue Medic 22, Engine 31, Air Unit 31 and DSO.Are you a member of the fire service?
