Fire at 254 Pine Street


This page and the other pages in this series are the successors to the series of web-page about the Camden Fire Department called Camden Fire Department: The Fires of the Summer of 2011. 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. 

At approximately 4:15 AM on December 21, 2011 a fire was reported in a vacant two-story home being utilized by a criminal trespasser at 254 Pine Street in South Camden. All hands were placed in operation. 254 Pine Street was utterly destroyed, and the adjacent property at 252 Pine Street, which was being repaired to make ready for rental, was badly damaged, and may have to be declared a total loss. On December 23rd, while photographing these properties, a neighbor informed me that a female squatter had been in and out of the building, and items of female clothing could be seen strewn about the fireground.

As with the web page covering other Camden Fire Department events, if you can identify anyone that I've missed, please e-mail me. (I'm terrible at at names and faces).
