Around 22:50 hours Taskforce 5 was hit out for a dwelling call on the 100 block of Crescent Avenue in Woodbury. 7301 was the first to arrive and was reporting a vacant, 1 ½ story dwelling with smoke and fire showing on the first floor. Upon arrival of the first due Engine Company the fire had reached the second floor. Crews went into service with 1 ¾ handlines. When additional crews arrived several more handles where put into service including the 2 ½. Due to the balloon style construction of the dwelling the fire was easily able to creep through the walls, making for a difficult fight. It wasn't before long that the blaze pushed through the roof.

After a little over an hour the fire was placed under control with no injuries reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Fire Marshals office.

Just before 9 p.m. the Westbury Park Taskforce was hit out for a marine rescue assignment at Beach Hill in National Park. The report came in as a dark hair, 17-year-old male in the water. Witnesses reported that the teen was sweep down river while trying to help friends who where stuck on the sandbar just off No-Name Island.

Upon arrival crews went right into service with a primary search of the area, searching the area just south of Beach Hill as well as the Woodbury Creek with negative results. After several hours or so with no luck, command ordered crews to begin dragging the river between the shore and No-Name Island. Several marine units from the area assisted in the dragging efforts, which lead into the early morning hours with no luck of finding the victim.

Crews went back into service this morning assisted by divers and additional marine units to help with the recovery effort.

Around 12:44 p.m. the Task Force was hit out for a reported dwelling fire with entrapment at 300 New Jersey Avenue. Upon arrival of the first due engine (811), crews reported a fully involved dwelling and an all-hands working request was made. 811 crew went right to work with a 1 ¾ handline and deckgun to try and suppress as much of the fire as possible until additional crews arrived. Upon arrival of Woodbury & Westville crews additional lines where pulled into the job including the 2 ½.

Because this fire was occurring early during a weekday, manpower was light which prompted command (7301) to call for additional resources. Companies from Mt. Ephram, Bellmawr, Audubon, Thorofare, Woodbury Heights, and Deptford where called in.

Crews made quick work of this job placing it under control at around 1:23 p.m. Crews remained on location doing overhaul and assisting the Fire Marshall until about 3:30 p.m.

They’re where no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
