Fire Destroys Former Car Dealership

There were no injuries reported.


Just after 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28, units of the Santa Clara County, Calif. Fire Department responded to multiple reports of fire in a vacant commercial structure at 15400 Los Gatos Boulevard.

Upon arrival, firefighters were confronted with heavy fire and smoke from at least two sides of the structure requiring a second alarm to augment the equipment and personnel initially dispatched.

The 20,000 square foot structure, formerly home to Swanson Ford, was unoccupied. Firefighters were able to deploy multiple hand lines and an aerial master stream to bring the fire under control only minutes after their arrival.

There were no injuries reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
