The fire was burning in an outside storage area that contained piles of recycle materials. The heavy black smoke could be seen for miles!
Within a few minutes, the fire response was increased to a 3rd alarm, bringing additional fire units from Hollister, South Santa Clara County Fire District, Morgan Hill, San Jose, Santa Clara County, plus California Fish and Game for possible contaminated water runoff. On scene there were 11 engines, 3 ladder trucks, 2 breathing support units, 1 hazmat unit, and 4 chiefs. Additional engines back-filled empty stations in Gilroy and Morgan Hill.
