San Jose Fire Fighters responded this morning to 2079 Mclaughlin Avenue for report of an apartment on fire. Station 26 reported heavy black smoke showing from the station and a second alarm was struck. Multiple reports of people trapped by the fire, people jumping off balconies, trying to climb down ropes and limited apparatus access made this potentially a very dangerous fire. Eventually a 5 alarm fire response was dispatched to the scene to take care of all the needs. Redcross has been notified to help residents
