At 5:38 A.M., on Monday February 20, the San Jose Fire Department requested Fire Associates' assistance at a second-alarm commercial building fire. Located at 1050 Blossom Hill Rd., San Jose, a fire had started in a second-story tattoo studio and had spread to the attic. Firefighters arrived on scene shortly after 5:00 A.M. and reported flames shooting out of windows on the second floor, and immediately requested a second alarm.
Firefighters were able to quickly contain the blaze and prevent fire damage to the businesses on the ground floor, although there was some water damage. 
John Whiteside responded to the call with Fire Support Unit 3 from San Jose Fire Station 35 and was met on scene by Fire Associates members Bruce Dembecki, George Hoyt, Jerry Haag, Mike Chappell and Dan Wong. At this early morning fire, coffee was a firefighter favorite.
