Photos: Huge fire destroys Home Depot near Oakridge Mall in San Jose


The fire that tore through a Home Depot in South San Jose with such ferocity that orbiting satellites could detect its heat signature was first reported around the lumber section tucked in the back corner of the store, fire investigators announced Sunday.

A toxic stew of chemicals, paint, insulation and other building materials burned in the blaze and had prompted the air quality advisory and prompted nearby residents to shelter in place.

Hot spots continued to send up smoke from the building’s smoldering remains as firefighters continued pouring water on the store and investigators worked to narrow down the cause of the blaze.
