At approximately 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning, SJFD responded to multiple reports of a fire near I-280 and Lotus street. Fire crews were unable to locate the blaze for approximately 20 minutes due to multiple calls giving several different locations. SJPD initially thought that the fire was at a storage facility off of Bird st. and Lincoln ave. It was later determined that the actual blaze was in the vegetation in a homeless encampment just above the storage facility.
It took approximately 90 minutes to completely extinguish the fire. There were no reports of injury and no structures were damaged.
