We took a special tour of the San Jose Fire Museum with Captain Sean Lovens who shared the history of fire fighting in San Jose - from the days when firemen were known as "house wreckers" (because sometimes their only option was to pull a burning house down and save the rest of the town) to the human and horse drawn steamers and finally to modern fire engines. Many of San Jose's historic fire trucks are in the museum including one used in the 1906 earthquake.

This was a great back drop for our featured stories of 3 local heroes, a helicopter pilot from Cal Fire who's seen more than his share of action and a number of blazes, a pilot who saved 155 lives when he miraculously landed his jet airliner on the Hudson River, and a fire captain who's search and rescue partner will melt your heart.
