Extreme Heat Pushes Fire To Fourth Alarm



    San Jose fire crews were able to control a four-alarm fire that burned a two-story building Sunday afternoon near downtown.
    The blaze was reported at 12:30 p.m. at 691 San Carlos St., San  Jose fire Capt. Chuck Rangel said. Firefighters declared the flames under  control by about 2:40 p.m.

    The fire escalated to four alarms due to the temperature in San Jose this afternoon, which reached 91 degrees when the blaze was burning,  Rangel said.

    It was an older home that burned and it was right next to a San Jose fire training center.

    No one appears to have been in the building during the fire, he  said.

    The cause remains under investigation.
