Sunnyvale Strip Mall Hit by 2-Alarm Blaze

Date and Time: 10-21-2015, 5:30 A.M.
Agency: Sunnyvale Public Safety
Type: Second Alarm
Location: 208 S Fair Oaks Ave., Sunnyvale
Details: Barbershop in a small, single-story strip mall. Exposures on the "B" and "D" sides were threatened but aggressive attack, aided by good fire separation walls, prevented serious fire damage to the adjoining businesses. The barber shop was seriously damaged. At one point, two elevated streams were in use and three 5-inch water supply lines were on the ground. Old, heavy construction and numerous voids in the roof space lead to an extended operation. Fire Support Unit 1 arrived at about 6:00 A.M. and was released from the scene at 9:30 A.M.
