November 10, 2007 - 2nd-alarm Santa Clara Response

On Saturday night, November 10, at approximately 23:46, FASCV was requested for a 2nd-alarm fire at 2490 Martin Ave. in the city of Santa Clara. Len Williams and Jerry Haag responded in Support Unit #1.

Len has submitted the following report:

It was in a
carpet sales place on Lafayette, near Martin, with, as you easily
can imagine, an incredible fire load.

Briefly, SCFD made a great stop and saved about 90% of the bldg. and the
inventory. However, now that I think about it, a lot of inventory probably
has little retail value left because of smoke damage.

It rained the entire time, although it was a low-volume steady rain, as
opposed to a gully-washer.

I was back home, and in bed, by around 2:00 a.m.
