Camden Fire Department
Fire, Rescue, & Safety Operations
January 1, 2012 - 811 South 5th Street - Page 1


This page and the other pages in this series are the successors to the series of web-page about the Camden Fire Department that began with the page 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. 

The first fire of 2012 in Camden came before noon, when an abandoned dwelling at 811 Pine Street was set ablaze. Camden firefighter Gabriel Angemi put it in a few understated words. 

"Took about 12 hours for CMDFD to get our first J O B of the new year. Aggressive work by 4 Platoon to save an occupied delta exposure from a well involved second floor fire."

The photos below will demonstrate quite graphically that there was a lot more to this fire than that. An abandoned property that adjoined an occupied unit was set on fire, and it was only through valiant effort that the occupied home at 809 South 5th Street was not consumed by fire as well.

Photographer William Kinder III was on scene a few minutes before I did, and took a few pictures showing that there was heavy fire showing from the second floor front bedroom of 811 South 5th Street. I arrived at 11:08 AM and there was till fire on the second floor at that time.

All photos are presented in the order in which they were taken. There are so many images for this fire that I have split coverage of this fire into three parts, this being Page 1. There are links below to continue to Page 2 and Page 3.

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).
