Crews battle 4-alarm fire in San Jose

Firefighters are responding to a four-alarm fire in downtown San Jose Friday afternoon near the freeway, fire officials said.

Crews responded to a report of a fire in the 400 block of Auzerais Avenue at about 12:10 p.m., fire Capt. Christopher Salcido said.

When firefighters arrived they found heavy smoke and flames coming from a single-story home, which prompted for a second-alarm response, Salcido said.

No one was trapped inside the home, he said.

The fire was upgraded to three alarms at 12:45 p.m. and four alarms as of 1 p.m., a fire dispatcher said.

The dispatcher did not know of any injuries.

The residence is northwest of interchange between state Highway 87 Interstate Highway 280.
