Saturday, October 10 at 8:29 P.M., Fire Associates received a request from South Santa Clara County Fire (Cal Fire) in Morgan Hill to respond to a working structure fire on Terri Lynn Court located off Center Ave. near its intersection with Masten Ave., in San Martin. The site was about 2 miles east of Station 68. 
Bill Roth lives a few miles from the scene and he was first to respond with drinks and Clif Bars. John Whiteside and his son Randy brought Fire Support Unit 3 to the scene, departing at 9:16 P.M. from San Jose Station 35. Rehab was set up with benches, cold drinks, coffee, Clif Bars and doughnuts available to the firefighters.
Fire units from Gilroy, Cal Fire, and San Jose assisted at the incident. Engine tanks and water tender shuttles were used for a water supply. The fire was contained to the home's garage, burning through the roof. After providing support, Fire Associates members were released at 11:55.
