Two dozen victims from nine families were displaced in an early-morning fire that swept through a Camden apartment complex early Mother's Day morning.
The three-alarm fire broke out at the Myrtle Place Apartments, made of brick but have been fitted with a wooden truss roof, local firefighters said. All residents made it out safely.
"Unfortunately, the first due fire engine (Engine 9) was closed due to a staffing policy," the fire department said.
"As such, the first engine (Engine 11) arrived 6 minutes after dispatch. There are no injuries to firefighters or civilians reported. The fire remains under investigation."
The red cross was assisting.
