UPDATED: Audubon Fire Department and Other Departments Respond to Brooklawn House Fire


Mt. Ephraim Fire Department (Dec. 24, 2021) post--Earlier today, at 9:30 am, your volunteer firefighters were alerted to cover Gloucester City Station 51 from Mount Ephraim Fire Department Station 45 while the Gloucester City Fire Department operated at an “All Hands” fire in Westville. While members stationed at our firehouse covering a large area of surrounding towns, your firefighters were alerted to a reported house fire (400 unit block of Chestnut St.,) in Brooklawn with reports of people trapped.

Within seconds Squad 45, under the command of Captain Herrmann, was out the doors and responding with a crew of five. Fire Dispatchers on duty at the Camden County Communication Center advised responding units that police arrived on location and had heavy smoke showing from the dwelling.

Within eight minutes of the first 911 call, Squad 45 arrived on location with smoke showing from a two-story single-family dwelling. The crew established a water supply and stretched a 1.75 handline and began fire suppression. Crews operated on Christmas Eve for 3.5 hours to extinguish the fire. Thank you to our dedicated members who took time away from their holiday and families to assist our surrounding towns. The Department would like to wish the residents a happy and healthy holiday!  A GoFund page has been set up to help the Coyle family, click here
