SJS Engine 27
San Jose fire firefighters responded to a report of smoke in the area of Hellyer County Park. Arriving fire fighters found a wind driven grass fire moving erraticly as the strong winds circled the area.
A TIER 2 response ensued with multiple wildland units, fire engines and water tenders on scene to contain the blaze. A couple of houses lost fences in the blaze, but damage was really kept to a minimmum.
San Jose Engine 27 serves San Jose's Coyote Valley area. Until days before this fire Engine 27 had one of the oldest main line rigs in the Department. Here we see their new rig, formerly Engine 26. This is a 2009 Hi-Tech built pumper on a Spartan Gladiator chassis.
