Lack of hydrants issue in Camden house fire

    Firefighters arrived to the scene of a fire this morning to find flames shooting out of a Camden County home in a neighborhood that didn’t have any nearby fire hydrants.

    WPVI-TV reports the fire sparked around 3:50 a.m. this morning on the 400 block of Angelo Road in Winslow Township.

    Water apparently became an issue for firefighters because there were no hydrants in the area, according to WPVI-TV. Water tankers were called in as a result, helping firefighters to get the fire under control within an hour.

    WPVI-TV says no injuries were reported. It’s unclear what caused the fire.

    The original version of this story mistakenly mentioned the fire happened in Camden, not Camden Township. The fire, according to the report, happened in Camden Township. NewsWorks regrets the error.
