Vegetation Fire on South Milpitas Blvd. and Garden St.

At 2:30 this afternoon, Milpitas Fire personnel showed up to address a vegetation fire at the corner of South Milpitas Boulevard and Garden Street.

Two engines were sent in, along with a Battalion Chief and a Fire Investigator. Upon arrival, the firefighters saw that a PG&E electrical pole had gone up in flames. Dry grass up against the creek bed was burning, too — about 100 feet of it in total ‘til the fire finally was contained. PG&E personnel worked with the firefighters on de-energizing the electrical pole, so as to minimize potential harm and damage.

The fire’s cause is still being investigated. MPD shut down nearby traffic for close to an hour while it was put out.

With fire season now underway, Milpitas residents and businesses should make every effort to minimize dry foliage on their property.
