Huntington, Pennsylvania Daily News – July 11, 1933
CAMDEN, N.J., July 11 — Damage was estimated at more than $250,000 today after a survey of the ruins of a lumber yard, two factory-buildings, and 13 houses, razed by a fire, which demolished an entire city block late yesterday.
Two firemen, William Hopkins and Felix Bendzyn, were in critical conditions in Cooper hospital of injuries they suffered when they fell from a burning building. Hopkins sustained a broken spine, while Block received several fractures and internal injuries.
Twenty persons were made homeless by the blaze, which started in the back yard of a private dwelling, and fanned by a strong wind from the Delaware river, swept across the C. B. Coles & Sons lumber yard.
