Photo Report: Camden NJ - Another Major Warehouse Blaze
Author: Story and Photos by Ted Aurig
On July 5th, 2011 a warehouse fire was dispatched in Camden City at 6th Street and Carl Miller Blvd.
Battalion 1 arrived and reported a 250x50 two story warehouse heavily involved with fire through the roof. The 2nd Alarm was sounded on arrival. Crews surrounded the building and set up for defensive operations picking up water supplies on their way in.
Crews remained on location well into the night hitting hot spots. No injuries were reported on the fire ground.
During the investigation it was found a homeless couple was living in the building; they reportedly had a domestic argument that led to the fire being started. It was reported an arrest was made and that this event was not related to the other warehouse fires in the City (see From The Field).
