SJ 87 Vegetation Fire


Shortly after 4:00 AM, Friday, CHP and San Jose FD began receiving reports of a vegetation fire on the North side of Highway 87, between the airport and Taylor. Initial responding units arrived to find approximately 1 acre of brush on fire, with mixed vegetation. SJFD requested an additional engine and water tanker, and put the majority of the fire out within 20 minutes, once access issues were overcome. SJFD is still in mop up stages. Cause and total acreage have yet to be determined.
