Three-alarm fire strikes San José neighborhood
On Saturday, October 11, 2008 at approximately 2:08 PM, units of the San José Fire Department responded to reports of a structure fire at 2069 Limewood Drive on San José's north side. Callers to 9-1-1 reported a loud explosion followed by a fast moving fire that fully engulfed a home under construction.
San José Fire Captain and Public Information Officer Barry Stallard was the first to arrive on scene after seeing smoke while driving on nearby I-680. Upon his arrival Stallard found 40-foot high flames fanned by strong winds. According to Stallard the homes on either side of the fire had already ignited requiring an additional second and third-alarm response.
Some residents could be seen hosing down shake rooftops, while firefighters worked to successfully stop the spread of the flames to additional structures. Firefighters were able to contain the blaze to the three properties, with one structure burnt to the ground and the other two homes suffering serious damage.
There were no injuries reported and the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.Are you a member of the fire service?
