Two-Alarm Blaze Destroys San Jose Duplex
Just after midnight on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 units of the San Jose Fire Department responded to reports of a structure fire in one unit of an occupied single-story duplex.
Upon their arrival firefighters discovered heavy fire spreading throughout the structure. After conducting a primary search to confirm all occupants were out of the building crews were ordered out of the structure.
With flames through the roof, Incident Commander BC Susan Salinger called for a transition to defensive operations.
As flames consumed the roof of the structure, Truck 13 opened up with an aerial master stream, knocking down the bulk of the fire.
