As the fire threatens to sweep through New Jersey, residents of this city are still dealing with the aftermath.
Firefighters from the New Jersey National Guard and the New York City Fire Department are battling a fire that’s sweeping through the city of Camden, New Jersey.
In the early morning hours of Monday, Aug. 22, the Camden Fire Department was called to the 100 block of N. Camden Street in the city’s North End for reports of a large fire.
The Camden Firefighters responded to the scene and found that a home in the same block had caught on fire.
As the fire continued to spread through the home, firefighters were able to put out the flames with their own water cannons.
As of Monday afternoon, the fire had been contained to the property and the fire department has ordered that residents should leave the property as soon as possible.
At this time, it is not known if anyone else was injured in the fire.
The fire is expected to be under control by Monday evening.
The fire is one of three that have been reported in New Jersey this year.
There have been more than 100 fires in the state, most of them caused by water-logged vehicles and wood-burning devices.
In addition to the Camden fire, there have been other major fires in New York in recent weeks.
A massive blaze on the West Side of Manhattan on April 12, which killed five people, was caused by a fire hydrant.
A fire at a landfill in Long Island, New York, that started in a garbage truck on May 7 and spread to homes, destroyed three homes and injured at least five more people, has since been ruled an arson.
The National Guard is assisting the New Orleans Police Department in the investigation of the fire in Camden.
