a fire destroyed one home and damaged another in san jose today. this is home video sent to abc 7 news by a viewer. is shows flames and heavy smoke coming from the roof of a two story house on conifer lane. sky 7 hd was on the scene as firefighters had to get off the roof because it was about to collapse. firefighters had to blast the home with a strong stream of water just to put out the hot spots.

9:18 pm
with a beefed up force those things are now possible. >> those are the things that matter to the majority of the people. those are the things where we need to have the community outreach and beat officers taking care of these things. >> reporter: the classes include teaching new recruits new technology like using computer tablets to write up incident reports. >> if we can get our officers more connected show can stay out on pa -- they can stay out on patrol longer. the back and forth to desktop computers goes away. >> reporter: the fire department also got good news. there will be one fire academy class everieer for the next six years with the goal of hiring a total of 252 new recruits. for years now the department has been at an all-time low in staffing. >> in recent years because we haven't been able to hire to match the levels of retirement we had to place heavy reliance on overtime. >> reporter: so the police academy here will be b the coming years.
