San Jose firefighters fought a 2-alarm fire Friday morning where a couple inside the home, which was storing ammunition, was injured, according to the homeowner's brother-in-law.

Sean Daley, told NBC Bay Area it was "gut wrenching" to see his brother-in-law's home on Carlton Avenue ablaze. He said his brother-in-law suffered a burn to his head, and his wife was also injured - to what extent wasn't clear.

Daley said that he was told by his brother-in-law that the fire started in the kitchen area about 4 a.m., and that there was ammunition inside the house, which made it more difficult for firefighters to enter the home. Exactly why there was ammunition inside wasn't immediately clear.
