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)..
P.S. I was sent five additional images from this fire.... I'm pretty sure they came from someone who was working EMS that night, but for the life of me I can't find the e-mail that they came in, so I don't know who to credit here. The images are at the bottom of the page. I know I thanked the sender when I got them, well.... THANKS AGAIN!!!! -
