A fire Sunday went to five alarms and injured at least two firefighters in San Jose, California.
Video from the scene showed fire blowing out the roof of the structure. According to the information on the video, the structure, a former television studio, was occupied by approximately 30 squatters.
KGO (http://bit.ly/1eAY1gm) reported that the building was located across the street from a San Jose Fire Department training center. The fire also reportedly damaged apparatus at the scene.
Officials were worried about a possible structure collapse and ordered all crews to stay 100 feet away from the building. A wall partially collapsed during the incident.
