Camden Fire Department
Fire, Rescue, & Safety Operations
February 28, 2012 - 3133 Saunders Street


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. 

On the evening of February 28, 2012 I was in Cherry Hill, New Jersey headed to my father's house to pick him up as we had plans to go to dinner. I was about 50 yards from his house when an alarm sounded for a house fire at 3133 Saunders Street in East Camden. This house was built about ten years ago on the site of the former Westfield Acres public housing project, and was located on the corner of Saunders Street and Rosedale Avenue. I stopped, got my father, and off we went to Camden. It took awhile to get there as it was rush hour and we had to come down Chapel Avenue in Cherry Hill, then down Maple Avenue in Merchantville to get to East Camden. The fire was under control when we arrived but there was still much to photograph. 

Camden Fire Department companies arrived with heavy fire conditions showing from the second story wood frame twin dwelling. Command struck a 2nd Alarm as crews operated in a defensive operation. Units from  Collingswood and Pennsauken were also called on to rend assistance.

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)..
