Photos and story by Ted Aurig
Battalion 2 arrived and struck the all-hands box for a 2 ½-story, single-family, wood-frame dwelling with heavy fire conditions in the basement.
The fire was knocked down and placed under control with no injuries to firefighters.
In the second incident, Camden city units along with a mutual aid engine company from Pennsauken were dispatched to Princess Ave for a reported dwelling fire.
Camden county communications advised responding units they were receiving multiple calls for a house on fire. The engine company from Pennsauken arrived and reported smoke showing from the second floor.
Command arrived and reported a two-story, middle-of-the-row dwelling with heavy smoke showing, striking the all-hands box. Companies secured a water supply and went into operation with a 1 ¾-inch handline followed by a backup line. The truck company went to the roof as searches were performed.
This fire was also knocked down and placed under control with no injuries to firefighters.
