Wildland Fire Scorches South San Jose Hills
Wildland Fire Scorches South San Jose Hills

On Monday, June 30, 2014, at 1340 PM, 9-1-1 calls began to flood the San Jose Fire Department communications center with reports of a vegetation fire in the Santa Teresa Hills above Curie Drive on the citys south side. As firefighters began to arrive in the area additional resources were requested, including a full response from CAL FIRE. With fire spreading quickly in the tinder dry vegetation a call went out for more firefighters eventually making this blaze a four-alarm incident. Initial estimates place the size of the fire at 175 acres with containment achieved by 1917 hours. Despite blistering early summer heat, firefighters were able to corral the fire saving numerous homes. Two firefighters suffered heat related injuries and were transported to an area hospital for treatment.
