SAN JOSE -- Firefighters searched a one-alarm blaze that destroyed a mobile home overnight and are "pretty confident" that no one was trapped inside, according to San Jose Fire Capt. Rob Brown.
At 2:12 a.m. firefighters responded to several calls that a unit in the Casa Alondra mobile home park on Monterey Road was on fire, according to San Jose fire Capt. Rob Brown. When crews arrived, the unit was fully engulfed in flames.
Firefighters knocked down the blaze while working to keep the flames from jumping to other units, Brown said.
Neighbors told firefighters that a man lived alone in the unit, and that usually there was a car parked in the driveway. There was no car in the driveway at the time of the fire, leading firefighters to remain hopeful nobody was inside when the blaze broke out.
Once the blaze was extinguished, firefighters searched about 80 percent of the unit and did not find anyone inside. Firefighters waited for daylight and then searched the remainder of the home and did not find anything, Brown said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
