On Monday August 19, 2002, the City of San Jose, California experienced the worst fire loss in its history. By the time the day was over, eleven alarms would be dispatched to a large structure fire and the numerous exposure fires ignited by flying embers from the fire. Extinguishment required the combined effort of 221 firefighters and sixty-five pieces of apparatus. Fortunately, no one was killed and there were only minor injuries sustained by a number of firefighters.
