Residents were awakened by the sound of flames on the roof, while the residents in the adjoining unit of the duplex were roused by pounding on their front door. Everyone escaped unharmed, but the building and contents were destroyed.
San Jose Fire called Fire Associates for Rehab support around 4:30 a.m. and Bruce Dembecki responded in Fire Support Unit 2. Bruce was met on scene by George Hoyt and Jerry Haag. Hot coffee was well received by cold and wet fire fighters. Support Unit 2 was released at 6:00 a.m.
