September 20, 2007 - 2nd-alarm Morgan Hill Response

At 1:26 P.M. on Thursday, September 20, South County Fire asked for FASCV support at a 2-alarm greenhouse fire at 715 Fisher Ave. in Morgan Hill. Don Gilbert responded in Support Unit #2 with the help of Mike Chappell and John Whitaker. The fire was apparently started by a downed power line that ignited grasses that were growing under the abandoned structures. As usual, our lemonade was greatly appreciated by the combined firefighting forces from South County and Cal Fire. FASCV was released from the scene at approximately 3:00 P.M.

A news story describing the fire can be found at this link: John Whitaker's photos are posted at: SCC-Morgan Hill Greenhouses
