Monday, December 26, 2011 Task Force 32 (Bellmawr) was dispatched early this morning to 165 Hall Avenue for a reported dwelling fire. A female resident was sleeping in a front room when she was alerted by the sound of a smoke detector beeping. She quickly observed a fire in the kitchen area and exited the house.
Squirt 32 arrived and reported fire showing from the rear. Crews made an aggressive attack on the fire advancing a 1 3/4 line through the front door while a second back up line cut off the advancing in the attic area. The fire was placed under control at the 20 minute mark. Units from Gloucester City, Barrington, Runnemede and Mt Ephraim also responded. The fire is under investigation and no reported injuries.
