Trash Fire at Davis and Copewood Streets

Once again, the Camden Fire Department was dispatched to the former site of the Coriell Institute for another trash fire at the rear of the property. The fires in the abandoned structures are a complete pain in the ass, as there is no water supply near where the fires have been set, and hose has to be dragged a great distance in order to extinguish them.

Garage Fire on Warnock Place

After leaving Engine 10, I stopped by Squad 7, and was still there when this box came in. Police were already on scene, Squad 7 was the first fire unit to arrive. There was a whole lot of smoke from this detached garage on Warnock Place, an old more or less abandoned street that runs west from South 8th Street between Sycamore Street and Kaighn Avenue. A water supply was secured, and the fire, which had spread to the siding of the adjacent house on 8th Street was quickly dealt with, with no damage to the home save the siding. There were no injuries, which is always a blessing.
