Neighbors told reporters the crash sounded almost like an explosion. 

"I see them with a lot of blood on the face," Angela Guzman told KTVU. "The firefighters- there was a lot of blood and their hands broken."

One resident said a paramedic on the engine truck almost immediately began attending to his injured colleagues.
