Story and Photos by Ted Aurig/

On June 11, 2012 a dwelling fire was reported in the area of 9th St. and Vine Street in Camden City at 5:45 A.M.

Engine 1 arrived on location with heavy fire showing. Battalion 2 arrived and reported a 2 story end of the row dwelling with heavy fire 1st and 2nd floors with extension.  The All Hands box was transmitted.

Companies secured water supplies and went into operation with multiple hand lines.

Command struck the 2nd Alarm, as the fire affected a total of three structures.

Crews knocked the bulk of the fire down and opened up to check for extension.

No firefighter injuries were reported on the fire ground.

The fire is under investigation by the Camden City Fire Marshals Office.


Later that same day, Camden firefighters battled a second working fire. 

Crews were dispatched to 1462 for a dwelling fire.  Companies arrived with heavy fire conditions in three vacant dwellings.  Battalion 1 struck the All Hands and directed companies to set up for defensive operations.

Ladder 1 and Ladder 3 went into operation with the Ladder Pipes as multiple 2 ½” hand lines were stretched.

Crews brought the fire under control with no reported injuries.

These three dwellings have been on fire multiple times within the last several years.
