The volunteer fire companies of Cologne, Laureldale and Mays Landing responded to Falcon Court in the Timber Glen Townhouse development for a structure fire. A Laureldale fire officer who was in the area saw a large header and requested a ladder from the Pomona Fire Company from neighboring Galloway Township, which, upon its arrival, tied into a nearby hydrant and put its main into service on the B side and its crew stretched two 2-1/2 inch lines to the rear of the building and started attacking the fire. Firefighters on the A side had multiple handlines in operation and once the bulk of the fire was knocked down, crews ventured in to check for extension. Two firewalls kept the fire from spreading through the complex. Also responding were Township of Hamilton Police and EMS, Atlantic County Fire Coordin-ators, Bargaintown, Atlantic City Airport Fire Department, Oceanville.
