Bellmawr: Saunders Avenue Fire Under Control Within 20 Minutes

Wednesday, July 7, 2010 

256223_thumb.pjpeg Early this morning Task Force 32 was dispatched to the 300 block of Saunders Avenue for a reported dwelling fire.   Squad 32 arrived with a 1 1/2 story SFD with fire showing from Division C.  

Crews discovered the deck in the rear of the property was heavily involved with extension into the main structure.  Crews used 2 1 3/4 lines to bring the fire quickly under control at the 20 minute mark. 2 adults and 2 children escaped unharmed.  The Camden County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause.   Nice job by all companies.

While units were responding to the job on Saunders, Dispatch notified Battalion 303 ( Griffith) that they were sending 256221_thumb.pjpeg out another box for an Apartment fire on the other side of town.  401 (Gilmore) along with Squad 51 (Gloucester City) and Ladder 73 (Westville) handled a malfunctioning A/C unit that resulted in a smoke condition in the apartment.  Again nice job by all.
