A Gas Leak in Cramer Hill


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.

Metal thieves apparently struck again, which pipes being stolen from a vacant two-story twin at 923 North 31st Street in Cramer Hill. A strong odor of natural gas was noticed after someone had been seen leaving the property. Whoever stole the pipes left the gas cock wide open, putting the entire neighborhood in danger from a gas-fired explosion. When I arrived on scene most of the nearby homes had been evacuated, several of Camden's companies were on had as well as a ladder company from Pennsauken. Workers from the gas utility arrived, and as it was determined that gas could not be shot off inside the building, it had to be turned off from the street. A similar crime had happened nearby a few days earlier, only through the grace of God was a disaster avoided.  

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).
