About 50 mattresses burned in a two-alarm fire this morning at a San Jose Salvation Army store, a San Jose fire captain said.

The fire was reported at 7:29 a.m. at a Salvation Army at 702 W. Taylor St.

Crews arrived to find thick smoke coming from the building's loading dock area. Dozens of mattresses were burning and firefighters called a second alarm as a precaution, Capt. Charles Rangel said.

The fire was contained at about 8:10 a.m.

Some employees who were inside the building when the fire started were evacuated but no injuries were reported, he said.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
