August 19, 2007 -- 2-alarm Milpitas Response

At 12:09 P.M. on Sunday, August 19, FASCV was dispatched to a 2-alarm house fire on the north end of Milpitas Fire's district. The fire was located at 1502 Michael Court - near the intersection of Michael Street and Evans Road. Bob Gundrum and Jerry Haag responded in Support Unit 1. Arriving later on scene was your FASCV "Blog Master", John Whitaker.

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.

-- The Blogmaster's busy schedule caused this late report...Sorry!
