EGG HARBOR CITY, NJ - An early-morning fire broke out just before 10:00 A.M. on the 200 block of Liverpool Ave., March 1st. Companies arrived on scene to find heavy smoke and fire showing from an occupied structure.

Mutual aid companies were quickly called to the scene to assist in containing the blaze, which spread to an adjacent structure. Crews initially began an aggressive interior attack, but were moved out of the structure as water issues were encountered.

Ladder trucks from Egg Harbor City and May's Landing conducted aerial operations on the fire ground and were able to extinguish the bulk of the fire in the roof of one of the structures.

Shortly after, crews were seen cutting a hole in the roof of the adjacent building and brought the fire under control. A dog that was feared lost in the blaze was able to get out of the structure nearly 40 minutes after the fire broke out.

The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time. Units assisting on the fire were: Pomona Vol. Fire Co., Germania Vol. Fire Co., S. Egg Harbor Vol. Fire Co., Mays Landing Vol. Fire Co., Atlantic City International Airport Fire/Rescue, Galloway Twp. Ambulance Squad, Galloway Twp. Police, and Egg Harbor City Police.
