Details: San Jose firefighters worked a 2-alarm structure fire on Marten Ave. (near S. White Road) across the street from Mt. Pleasant High School. Fire crews worked to quell the blaze in 2 houses, with the "Delta" exposure side having caught. Only external damage resulted as the occupant was able to remain in the house that night. Fire Support Unit 2 responded to a special request on the air from the IC. John Whiteside drove the rig to the scene for Rehab on a hot, late summer afternoon. FSU-2 departed Station 6 at 5:30 P.M. and John met Mike Garcia at the scene. Med 30 later asked FASCV (Mike) to pick up 6 burritos for the ambulance crew and fire crew awaiting the board-up contractor.
