Coach loses equipment for soccer team in San Jose grass fire


SAN JOSE (KRON) — Residents of a San Jose neighborhood are dealing with the aftermath of a fire Sunday, which destroyed three homes and damaged two others.

A man said he lost everything in the fire, including all the equipment for the soccer team he coaches.

Rico Rangel was working in the backyard of his home on Snow Dr. on Sunday when a fire that started next door quickly spread to his home.

A neighbor captured a short clip of Rangel’s burning home before being evacuated as the fire destroyed a third home, and damaged two more before jumping a sound wall.

Arson investigators are on the scene, but the cause of the fire has not been determined.
