Unconscious man rescued from SJ house fire
An unconscious man was rescued tonight from a burning single-family home in San Jose, a fire captain said.
The fire was first reported at 8:33 p.m. in the 1400 block of Mt.
Diablo Drive. Firefighters carried the man out, resuscitated him and he was taken to a hospital, San Jose fire Capt. Mike Van Elgort said.
The fire initially went to a second alarm, but firefighters canceled that once they knocked down the fire.
Crews held the fire to the one home.
Van Elgort said:
“Outstanding work by firefighters tonight.”
The blaze caused moderate to severe damage that left the home uninhabitable. Two adults and two children were displaced.
The origin and the cause of the fire are under investigation.
