Twelve units, 60 firefighters were called in. According to Battalion Chief Endall, the fire started in the basement and rose through the basement roof to a first floor room in the rear of the house. Endall said the heavy plywood, with which the house was boarded, caused heavy smoke on the premises. The fire is under investigation. Both firefighters were taken to Peninsula Hospital Center. The home has been vacant for a number of years and was the scene of another fire in April of 2006.
