Camden Fire Department
Fire, Rescue, & Safety Operations
May 31, 2012 - Fire at 424 Broadway


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 March 23, 2012 the Camden Fire Department put out a fire in a vacant (except for squatters) building at 426 Broadway. On May 31, the Department return to take care of a fire next door, at 424 Broadway, also vacant and also infested by squatters. The Battalion Chief on arrival reported heavy fire showing from the second floor of a three-story dwelling, with a person trapped. Multiple hand  lines and two ladders were put into service. A woman was rescued from the second floor and taken to Cooper Trauma Center, firefighters Denis O'Reilly and Victor Torres being the heroes of the day.

Besides the photos presented on this page, which I shot, there are many more pictures, taken by Ted Aurig, that can be seen at NewJerseyFireground.com.

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).
