SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — A home in San Jose’s East Foothills is unlivable after a suspicious two-alarm blaze caused major damage to the structure Friday night, a fire captain said.

Firefighters responded to a report of a fire in the 10000 block of Miguelita Road in unincorporated San Jose at about 8:50 p.m., Capt. Reggie Williams said.

When crews arrived, the rear and attic space of the two-story single-family home was engulfed in flames, Willams said. A second alarm was called just after 9 p.m., he said.

At about 9:44 p.m., the fire was knocked down. Less than an hour later, at 10:35 p.m., the fire was under control, Williams said.

No one was living in the home at the time of the fire, but it was furnished, he said.

One firefighter suffered minor injuries to his extremities and was transported to a hospital, the captain said.

There is no estimated damage to the home, but Williams said the home is not livable.

The cause of the fire is unknown, but investigators believe it is suspicious in nature, Williams said. It remains under investigation.
