6 people displaced in 3-alarm San Jose fire

SAN JOSE, Calif.

The fire in a 16-unit building was reported around 1:49 p.m. when fire officials received multiple calls reporting flames and smoke coming from an apartment, Fire Capt. Michael Van Elgort said.

Firefighters called a second and third alarm in order to keep the fire from spreading to neighboring units.

By the time the fire was contained at 2:38 p.m., one unit had been completely destroyed, two others had received minor to moderate damage and a fourth suffered water damage, Van Elgort said.

There were no injuries, but one small dog was reported missing. One firefighter was transported to a hospital for treatment of a medical complaint.

The fire's point of origin is still under investigation, but the cause has been deemed accidental, Van Elgort said.
