Twenty-Fifth
Street


TWENTY-FIFTH STREET begins in what was originally called the Pavonia section of what is now considered Cramer Hill and ends in East Camden at Carman Street. When it was first laid out, sometime prior to 1887, it was called Fulton Street, the renaming taking place sometime after the 1899 annexation of Stockton Township to Camden. The street begins at the Delaware River, where the Farragut Sportsman Association has its docks, and runs south, across River Road to the Pavonia railroad switching yard, then to Federal Street, then for one short block to Carman Street. Prior to World War II, there were several houseboats moored at the foot of North 25th Street.

As in all numbered streets in Camden, it is North 25th Street above Federal, and South 25th below.

Do you have a Twenty-Fifth Street memory or picture? Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

Two firefighters hurt, 3 homeless after blaze

Two city firefighters were injured and three people left homeless early Wednesday when a two-alarm fire heavily damaged attached homes in the 1000 block of North 25th Street.

Camden City Chief Fire Marshal Herb Leary said the fire erupted about 4:05 a.m. in a basement lighting fixture of a home at 1006 North 25th Street occupied by a couple. Their names were not immediately available.

The fire spread through the home and into the home of an 82-year-old woman at 1008 North 25th Street. The woman, who was not immediately identified, was awakened by a smoke alarm in her home, Leary said.

All three people fled their burning homes before firefighters arrived. The American Red Cross was helping them to relocate, Leary said.

Firefighters fought the blaze until about, 5:45 a.m. before declaring it under control. Two city firefighters, Capt. Duane Goobic and Firefighter Jim Ryan, were injured battling the blaze. Both were taken to Cooper Hospital/University Medical Center in Camden.

Goobic was treated for a cut on his lip and Ryan was treated for an ankle sprain. Both were released after treatment, Leary said.

While city firefighters were fighting the blaze, they also were called at about 4:30 a.m. to battle a fire in a vacant home in the 500 block of Pfeiffer Street.

Leary said someone had placed a 100-pound canister of propane gas in the home and set it ablaze. The tank burned but did not explode. The fire extensively damaged the home.

MOVE OR GO TO JAIL, MAN TOLD BY COURT

An East Camden man was given one day to vacate the house he now occupies or go to jail. The moving order was issued yesterday by Police Judge Pancoast to William J. Cassidy; 918 North Twenty-fifth Street, when he was arraigned upon complaint of Harold Hartman, representative of Carl Evered Company, 450 Broadway, real estate firm.

Hartman said the man had been evicted on April 27 and his furniture removed to the street by officers of the district court. When the officers left,

Hartman said, Cassidy moved his furniture back into the house. Cassidy said he returned to the house when the court officials said it would be all right to do so.

MEDIA   INFORMATION

October 2, 2004

Camden County Prosecutor Vincent P. Sarubbi and Interim Camden Police Chief Edwin J. Figueroa reported that a 12-year-old boy was shot and killed early today this morning inside his home in Camden, N.J.

Pedro Molina, of 31 N. 25th Street (25th & Federal streets), suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was dead at the scene.

Preliminary investigation indicates that someone knocked on the front door of the home, where Pedro lived with his mother and siblings, at approximately 2:10 a.m. today. The boy went to the door and began to open it when an unknown gunman began firing shots through the door and struck the victim.

No arrests have been made. An investigation continues.

"I am shocked and outraged," Sarubbi said. "It is tragic and sad whenever violence spills over and takes the life of an innocent child. But my office is determined to work together with the Chief Figueroa and the Camden Police Department to find out all the facts surrounding this murder and to identify the person or persons responsible and to bring them to justice."

Gunfight wounds child, 3, and three others

 

By GEORGE CLARK and JIM WALSH
Courier-Post Staff

CAMDEN

Four people, including a 3-year-old boy, were wounded when a running gun battle erupted on a city street Friday.

All of the victims were reported in stable condition after the shootout, which occurred around 6 p.m. in the 900 block of North 25th Street.

Two victims were 16- and 18-year-old males, police said. The fourth was a 73-year-old man, whom neighbors described as a bystander.

Observers expressed shock at the daylight violence, which left the street littered with shell casings.

"Everybody's terrified," said Joselyn Hernandez of Cherry Hill, who was visiting her mother's home near the shooting scene. She blamed the gunfire on drug dealers who operate on the block.

Police still were trying to piece together what happened late Friday. No arrests had been made by press time.

The child who was shot was being held by one of the victims, who was a family member, said police spokeswoman Teresa Sicard Archambeault. She said it was not immediately clear if the man was part of the melee. The family relationship was not known.

But Hernandez, who arrived shortly after the gunfight, said her mother witnessed a man shooting as he held the child.

Hernandez and other neighbors also said the older victim was a customer at a nearby restaurant.

Multiple shots were fired during the gunfight, which extended to 24th Street and River Road, said Archambeault.

Police said all the injured were taken to Cooper University Hospital. The victims' names and the extent of their injuries were not released.

Hernandez said the block has "very good neighbors," but noted it also has two abandoned houses that are used by drug dealers.

"A lot of these guys don't even live in this block," said Hernandez. "Now they're turning against each other and trying to kill one another."
