Cherry Hill Firefighters were alerted to a reported rubbish fire to the rear of the Pathmark super market in the 900 block of Church Road. As a single crew of firefighters arrived, they encountered a wind swept fire involving about 40 to 50 feet of wooden fence and the brush around it. Also on fire were a half dozen wooden pallets leaning against the building.
Additional crews were asked to respond to check for possible extension into the building and on the roof. In the end, no extension was encountered and the fire on the exterior was extinguished and overhauled. This fire is under investigation by the Cherry Hill Fire Marshal's Office.
