On Tuesday, April 24 at approx. 2:30pm, CHFD Tower Ladder 1324 was requested for mutual aid into the City of Camden. The Camden Fire Department struck a second alarm for heavy fire showing from the second floor of a 2-story, occupied commercial building at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and S. 9th Street.
Upon arrival, Tower Ladder 24 positioned on the division B side of the building and directed its elevated master stream on the division C exposure wall and roof. After repositioning, the ladder main was used to direct a water stream into the second story windows on the division B side. Eventually the fire vented through the roof, and TL 24 used its master stream to suppress the fire above the roof and into the fire building.
