August 22, 2010 -- San Jose Has 3-Alarm Apartment Fire

Shortly after 10:00 A.M. on Sunday morning, Aug. 22, the San Jose Fire Department responded to a fire in the Evergreen District on the city southeast side. The 3-alarm fire was located in a complex of apartments at 3309 Canongate Court. Don Gilbert responded in Support Unit 2 and was met on scene by FASCV members John Whitaker, Mike Chappell, Bruce Dembecki and Dan Wong.

The fire began in a detached garage area, but quickly spread to the apartment complex located to the rear of the garages. Once on scene, FASCV provided the usual cold drinks on a warm, summer morning. We were also asked to pick-up and serve 50 Togo's sandwiches. John Whitaker and Bruce Dembecki picked up the meals as the large order was split between two different Togo's locations. FASCV was released from the scene at approximately 2:00 P.M.
