2-alarm fire knocked down in San Jose

A two-alarm fire at a duplex in San Jose has been knocked down, but firefighters will remain on the scene throughout Wednesday morning to search for any hidden fire extension, fire officials said.

The fire was reported in the 400 block of Cypress Avenue at 12:40 a.m.

The 40 firefighters and command staff arrived to a heavy, well-involved fire threatening the structure’s other unit, Capt. Mike Van Elgort said.

Crews were in rescue mode, but confirmed that all three of the unit’s occupants along with one pet got out on their own.

One pet is still missing, Van Elgort said.

Fire crews knocked down the fire at 1:31 a.m. No injuries have been reported. The origin and cause of the fire are under investigation.
