2-ALARM FIRE BREAKS OUT IN LINDENWOLD

Some Lindenwold residents are lucky to be alive this morning.

Flames broke out just before 7:30 a.m. at the Stonington Court Apartments at 1800 Laurel Road in Lindenwold, N.J. The fire quickly spread to two alarms as thick smoke continued to plume out of the apartments.

The blaze left a police officer suffering from injuries but the extent of those injuries were unknown, according to Lindenwold firefighters on the scene.

Sixteen of the 24 units in the building were damaged, fire officials said. All residents were accounted for, according to authorities. (LINK)

Hopefully, the officer’s injuries are not severe. With so many apartments and so many residents, this fire could have been a lot worse.

    Concur, that one could have ‘run’ it there had been a lot of wind! That always scared the hell out of me to try to fight a fire in the wind, in a congested neighborhood!

    Cap:
    How much you wanna bet that the cause was either:
    1) grease unattended on the stiove.
    2) someone fell ASLEEP while cooking

    Seems to be the case all too often here in Ft. Wayne.
    Rare is the case where an electrical issue is at fault, but the manner in which they are constructed adds to the problem whenever a fire breaks out.

    Prayers to the LEO for a speedy recovery.

    Stay safe out there.
