3-Alarm Blaze in S. Camden
Fire Hydrant Vandalism Cited
A vacant home at 1729 Railroad Avenue was destroyed, and an occupied home next door at 1727 Railroad Avenue was badly damaged in a fire started by squatters. Vandalism to fire hydrants, very possibly by the same squatters who were occupying 1729 Railroad, delayed the extinguishing of the fire.
