SAN JOSE (KCBS Radio) -- Arson investigators are hoping images from security cameras will provide clues afteran office used by two California Teachers Association affiliates in San Jose erupted in flames for the second time this spring.

Thursday's  two-alarm fire hit a building on S. Capitol Avenue used by the Alum Rock Educators Association and the Mt. Hamilton chapter of the California Teachers Association. The same building sustained minor damage to the roof in a March 13 fire blamed on a Molotov cocktail.

KCBS Radio reporter Matt Bigler says investigators plan to review footage from at least two surveillance cameras on the building. 

The San Jose Mercury News reports the same building sustained damage in January when someone threw a concrete block through a window.
