At least two buildings were destroyed in a three-alarm fire at a lumberyard near San Jose Tuesday morning, Cal Fire officials said.
The fire was reported at 7:45 a.m. at the Padula Lumber Co. at 8149 Monterey Road, just outside of San Jose city limits.
As of 9:15 a.m., the blaze had been contained and had not spread beyond the yard, but the lumber company's main building had collapsed and other buildings were burning, Cal Fire Capt. Paul Provence said.
San Jose, Santa Clara County, Spring Valley, Morgan Hill and Gilroy fire departments responded to the call, according to officials at the scene. There were upwards of 50 firefighters on the scene.
No injuries were reported, Provence said.
David Hori of the Morgan Hill Fire Department said that two buildings on the yard were completely destroyed and an additional building was badly damaged. Two vehicles on the premesis were also destroyed.
