MOUNT EPHRAIM, NJ (April 18, 2018)(CNBNewsnet)--The Mount Ephraim Volunteer Fire Department has been kept busy in April with traffic accidents, fires and the Little League parade. 

The following statement and photos are from the Department's Facebook page. 


Nice work this past Saturday April 14th by your Volunteer firefighters. They started out the day bright and early with making the hoagies for our monthly hoagie sale and then providing the 2 engines for the annual opening day parade for Mt Ephraim Baseball and Softball Leagues. As the volunteers were home enjoying the beautiful weather we were dispatched at approximately 3 pm to Camden City for an activated fire alarm in the 2000 block of Ferry ave. While Squad 45 was responding with a crew of 5, they were recalled and directed to respond on the 2nd alarm to a building fire in the 1500 block of Ferry ave in Camden City which would end up going 3 alarms. The crew assisted with water supply and extinguishment. While the Squad was still committed in Camden, Engine 452 with a crew of 5 and Deputy Chief 402 responded to the 100 Block of Gloucester ave at approximately 7:15 pm for a brush fire. All crews returned to quarters shortly after 8 pm. Great work by all.
