Camden Fire Department
Fire, Rescue, & Safety Operations
April 16, 2012 - 600 Block of Chestnut Street
Car Fire


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.

I was in town with a friend, Merchantville volunteer fireman Rob Kanauss, running a few errands and stopping in to say hello here and there. After spending some time at the East Camden firehouse we had gone downtown and were at Fire Headquarters when a call came in concerning a car fire at South 7th and Chestnut Streets. We drove on down, making pretty good time taking the back streets, and got to the 600 block of Chestnut Street to find Squad Company 7 operating. A utility body truck had been traveling northbound on Route 676 when materials in the rear had ignited. The driver got off the highway at Atlantic Avenue, unaware of his problem until pedestrians in the vicinity of South 7th Street and Kaighn Avenue alerted him.

Squad 7 made short work of the fire. We stopped by Liberty Station for a bit, before leaving the city when Ladder 2 went off to the Maintenance Shop. Before we left Camden Fire Department member Craig Spearman drove past, and I got a shot of him driving his car! It was home for me to take my dogs for their daily late afternoon walk..... not knowing that I would be back in Camden within a few hours to photograph a dwelling fire at 2819 Benson Street. 

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).
