FREMONT (KCBS) — Seven people, including two police officers and two firefighters, were injured in a two-alarm blaze at a home in Fremont early Monday Morning, fire officials said.
Crews responded to a report of a house fire in the 3800 block of Farwell Drive around 4:30 a.m., Fremont fire Capt. Daniel Cardenas said.
When crews arrived, they found flames shooting out of the roof of the home and a man trying to escape from a high window. Firefighters and police officers worked together to get him out.
“They ended up assisting us by having to drive their vehicle up to that window so that firefighters didn’t have to go back to go get a ladder; they just got on the hood of that police unit and were able to get though the window and pull out the first victim—a male victim who was conscious at the time,” Cardenas said.
