Camden Fire Department
Fire, Rescue, & Safety Operations
October 17, 2012 - 2700 Block of Federal 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. 

Fire was reported in the 2700 block of Federal Street in the evening hours of October 17, 2012. The address given on the radio was 2725 Federal Street, this was not where the fire was however. By the time I arrived on scene the fire was under control. I took my first picture at 6:26 PM. Ladder 1 was operating on the roof of 2717 Federal, adjacent to a vacant dwelling at 2715 Federal Street... I will have to take a minute and get the correct address for this incident. 

By 6:46 PM things had pretty much run there course. A call came for a dwelling fire across town at Broadway and Webster Street. I drove over in that direction, however, traffic was atrocious, and when another call came for a possible trash fire on Line Street off of Haddon, I decided to go there. Squad 7 was dispatched to take the call. I got there first, parked my truck on Haddon, got out and waited in front of Bert's Steaks, where I got two shots of Ladder 3 on Mount Ephraim Avenue crossing Haddon Avenue. Squad 7 came moments later, and I got a few shots it. There was no fire, so I headed home... sanpped a couple of photos from the truck on the way, too! When I passed the scene of the Federal Street fire, Engine 9 was still on scene waiting for the fire marshal to arrive. I stopped to shoot the breeze with friends for a bit, took a couple more pictures, then home I went!

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).
