On this and other pages in the series you will find pictures and information regarding different events and aspects of the fire service in Camden, New Jersey. 

Mid-afternoon on October 4, 2011 fire was reported at 3306 Federal Street in East Camden. Engine 9 and Tower Ladder 3 responded, finding a small fire caused by careless cooking. The fire was quickly dealt with and the building ventilated.
