After an already busy weekend, San Jose firefighters were summonsed to 1810 Almaden Road to reports of a commercial property fire at 11:19 A.M. on Sunday, January 19th. Firefighters arrived at a building contractors facility to find fire in the premises, and upgraded the incident to a second alarm, and then a third. Fire crews had the fire knocked down with 45 minutes.
Upon being paged out for the third alarm response at 11:40 A.M., Fire Associates member John Whiteside headed to Fire Station 6 to pick up Fire Support Unit 2, where he was met by member Don Gilbert. John and Don brought FSU-2 to the fire ground, where they were met by Fire Associates members Bruce Dembecki, Dan Wong, and George Hoyt. Cold drinks were served and once the IC formulated the overhaul plans meals were arranged for those crews working into the afternoon on the fire ground.
