Crews knocked down a fire at a two-story house in South San Jose, near Hellyer County Park, early Friday morning, but not before there was significant damage to the home, according to the San Jose Fire Department.
At about 1:50 a.m., firefighters responded to the 500 block of Park Johnson Place, near Senter Road, on a reported fire in the backyard kitchen of a home that spread to the main house, fire officials said.
Residents of the home evacuated safely, and one person suffered a minor injury after they slipped and fell while escaping the flames, fire officials said.
It was unclear how many people lived in the home, but it appeared the house was destroyed by the fire.
