San Jose Fire Crews Rescue Man and Dog Along Coyote Creek

NBC Universal, Inc.

San Jose fire crews responded to a rescue call early Monday along the fast rising Coyote Creek, where a man and a dog were rescued from rising waters.

Video footage shows a heavy police and fire department response at the creek near Corie Court and Oakland Road and shows some tents partially submerged and surrounded by water.

In another rescue response in San Jose, fire crews were able to pull one person from the fast rising Guadalupe River, but another person was still missing Monday, officials said.

In that incident, firefighters responded to the area of Coleman Avenue and Autumn Parkway at about 2:40 a.m. and found one person clinging to a tree, San Jose fire officials said. Crews searched for a second person but were unable to find that person.

The National Weather Service indicated the Guadalupe River rose about 7 feet in a span of 10 hours, with the level peaking at just under 12 feet. The river's flood threshold is 18.5 feet.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story incorrectly described the Coyote Creek victim as unhoused.
