A possible arson case this morning left a San Jose man and woman suffering from critical burn injuries.
The fire was reported at around 3:45 and firefighers arrived to find 20 to 30 foot flames coming from the home on the 2900 block of Aetna Way.
Fire officials say the blaze started somewhere behind the home and the man and woman escaped through the garage, though their escaped was slowed by bars on the window.
Arson is believed to be the cause of this fire and the home is being treated as a crime scene.Full Story

Prosecutors say Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood are accused of being felons in possession of firearms.
