LIVE: Fires burning in San Jose's Santa Teresa foothills, arson suspected
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Multiple fires are burning in the Santa Teresa foothills in San Jose.
They're all in the area of Colleen Drive, near the Boulder Ridge golf course in South San Jose.
As of 7:35 p.m., the fire was 25-acres in size and not contained, per CAL FIRE.
They may be the work of an arsonist, and there are reports that someone is in custody.
Helicopters are flying over the scene, and the San Jose Fire Department has requested assistance from Santa Clara County's Wildland Task Force.
This comes just hours after a fire in San Felipe Road and Heartland behind San Jose's California Oak Creek neighborhood.
Aircrews are now doing their part to slow the flames. You can see a plane fly through the smoke from the right and drop retardant on the hillside. I see three planes and one chopper over top as this fire in San Jose continues to burn. @abc7newsbayarea pic.twitter.com/NklC8NxZ34

Here is our 5th installment of MEET THE BV BOARD: "I grew up not knowing much about baseball. I knew how the game generally was played from kids in my neighborhood -- hit the ball, run towards first and not third, names of positions. That sort of thing. When I met my now-husband, I knew that baseball would be a big part of my and our family's lives. BV has played a H U G E part. I couldn't be more grateful to BV, the community it has fostered, and the development it has brought to my family.
My son started playing in the league when he was four years old, during a Fall Ball season. I've seen him develop physically, mentally, and socially. The confidence he's gained from playing baseball with BV, the fundamentals of trying hard and working to master a skill, and the importance of being a good team player are things that he carries with him off the field and into his academics and non-baseball life. My daughter started playing in BV as soon as she was of age because of the fun she had on the sidelines and saw her brother having on the field. She too has greatly benefited from learning this game and learning how to be a part of a team.
We now have a strong baseball family. Folks that we celebrate life milestones; friends that we share life's ups and downs; people that we see multiple times a week, be it carpooling, coaching, practicing, grabbing a bite, or just generally sharing our love of the game and this league. Joining the BV Board seemed like the best way to give back to the community that has given us so much. I want every BV family to have the opportunity to grow and benefit as mine has.
You will often find me at the Snack Shack, trying to find ways to fundraise for the league while serving our BV community cold drinks and delicious treats. Please swing by and say, 'Hello!'"
