At 4:15 AM in the morning of December 27, 2011 a fire was reported in a second-floor bedroom of 826 South 8th Street in South Camden, between Division Street and Spruce Street. The fire in this two-story middle of the row dwelling was quickly knocked down. 

Late that evening a fire was reported at 1620-B South 9th Street. A grease fire in a pan on a stove was made much worse when the resident poured water onto it, which only caused the fire to spread to the curtains. This was quickly handled before significant damage was sustained
