Fire crews in the South Bay have been busy all week and remain on high alert now that inspectors have raised the possibility that some fires have been set intentionally. Firefighting crews have been stretched thin the past couple of weeks, with each shift going from one fire to the next. At Station 2, one of the busiest fire stations in the South Bay, it’s been nonstop for the men and women inside. Two days after the fire at Alum Rock Park, crews were still on the scene, putting out any potential hot spots. The fire burned 101 acres and was 100 percent contained by Thursday afternoon. At least 10 other fires have burned within a mile of the park over the past two weeks, and fire crews are feeling the heat. "That’s just physically and emotionally exhausting for firefighters," firefighters union president Sean Kaldor said.
