Three-alarm fire damages Los Gatos home
On Wednesday, July 11, 2013 at 1304 hours, units of the Santa Clara County Fire Department responded to reports of a residential structure fire at 16341 Lavender Lane in an unincorporatd area of Los Gatos.
The fire was initially reported by neighbors and appeared to have started on the second floor with flames quickly spreading to the attic. Construction workers across the street from the burning home left their worksite to check for occupants inside the house. They discovered a male that had been sleeping and assisted in getting him out of the house.
As the fire continued to burn additional alarms were struck summoning more firefighters to the scene to provide relief for crews that had responded on the first alarm. There were no injuries reported, but the home is uninhabitable. The fire was declared under control in just under 2.5 hours.Units attached to this event:
