SAN JOSE -- A couple and their dog were displaced after a house fire in the Cambrian Park neighborhood went to three alarms before fire crews knocked it down Wednesday evening, according to fire officials.
The blaze was first reported at 9:23 p.m. at a home in the 2200 block of Foxworthy Avenue, near Camden and Bascom avenues. Arriving crews saw flames and smoke coming from the second story of a residence and quickly called a second alarm, then a third minutes later because of its potential to spread.
San Jose fire Capt. Rob Brown said it was a 3,000-square-foot two-story house that presented access issues because of various add-ons and modifications.
"It was broke up into different sections, such as an area for a studio," Brown said.
One resident had minor burns to a hand from trying to put out the blaze after seeing it burning below the back deck of the home, Brown said.
The cause was not immediately known. The Red Cross is helping the displaced residents find temporary housing.
