December 24, 2012 - Two Runs on Christmas Eve


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. 

The First Run:

On Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving I make my "donut run".... drop off a dozen from Dunkin' Donuts at each of Camden's fire houses. I was at the East Camden firehouse when a call came over the radio for a gas leak at 928 Vine Street. The neighbors at 926 Vine had smelled a strong odor coming from next door, and with the resident of 928 not being at home, they called 911. The odor turned out to be fuel oil spilled in the basement of 928 Vine. After this job, I delivers some more donuts, then went home for Christmas with the in-laws, then went back out to drop donuts of at Squad 7 and at Engine 10, where I caught another run. 

The Second Run:

Engine 10 and other units were dispatched to a house in the 1300 block of Van Hook Street, this turned out to be nothing, but before we had a chance to get moving a call came for a building fire at Lou's Pizza at Collings Road and Mt. Ephraim Avenue. This, fortunately, was not a fire, a passer-by had seen smoke coming from the roof. Fire Department investigated the perimeter of the building and went up on the roof. No evidence of fire was found. 

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).
