Body found in home destroyed by early morning fire

A body has been found in a home destroyed by a three-alarm fire early this morning, but it will still be a while before firefighters are able to access the home, a fire captain said.

Firefighters spotted the body while using an aerial ladder truck as part of their investigation into the fire, which was reported at about 2 a.m. in the garage of a two-story home in the 700 block of North White Road, San Jose fire Capt. Scott Kouns said.

They saw the body while knocking off debris on the badly damaged roof of the home, Kouns said.

Firefighters arrived at the home after the initial call to find it engulfed in flames. They located one resident, who was taken to a hospital, but a second person believed to have been in the house had not been accounted for, Kouns said.

He said family members have been notified of the discovery of the body, but that because of the unstable condition of the structure, it will be a long time before authorities are able to get inside the house for further investigation.
