Structure save on Bear Creek

Greetings,

This morning at 05:25, CalFire, Loma Prieta Fire and an engine each from Boulder Creek Fire and Santa Clara County Fire were dispatched to a report of a structure fire on Bear Creek Road. Upon arrival, the detached garage was found to be fully involved with extension to the main structure and the wildland.

Quick action by personnel at the scene resulted in rapid containment of the wildland and a major save of most of the structure. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

Fire at bear creek no evacuation needed at this time.
