Car Catches Fire on Hamilton Avenue

Did you see this? Tell us what you saw.

Campbell Patch received word that a car was on fire on Hamilton Avenue just before Creekside. Several residents called us and the image shown is from a Campbell Patch tweeter, @adamvales.

We will update as soon as we hear back from Santa Clara County Fire.

See! This is one of the great things I love about CP :) You would never have this kind of quick local coverage on the other news sites...

I agree Bethany! I love what CP is doing and how quick they are with keeping us up to day!

Thank you ladies! I've got to say though, couldn't do it without our community being out there and giving me a heads up when they see something. I'm still waiting to hear back from the fire department but once they call back, I'll have more details.

Thanks Mayra! You ROCK!

Wow, that's intense. Keep us posted, Patch.

So Santa Clara County Fire will confirm that there was indeed a fire, that it did happen today but the official report has not been filed so no additional information until Monday. Sorry folks!

Thanks for the update. Hope everyone is ok!

Michelle: It's always interesting to see what happens just before, and just after you pass through, huh? I've had this happen to me several times and it never ceases to amaze me. Good thing for us that we have eyes and ears everywhere ;)
