Unlike most house fires FASCV responds to, this fire gutted the main portion of the house, sparing the garage. Most house-fire responses seem to gut the garage, with firefighters working to save the house! This house was undergoing extensive remodeling, but the cause of the fire was unclear.
A news story descrbing the fire can be found at this link: The Milpitas Post. John's photos of the fire can be found here: MLP - House Fire.
