Firefighters take on heat and humidity, besides fire and smoke

Firefighters around the region were extra hard at work, early Wednesday.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley was outside the Willingboro RV Center on Route 130 South in Edgewater Park.

He reported the fire started in the back garages, but that wasn't the worst of it.

The call came just before sunrise and that meant more heat to endure, along with humidity and smoke.

Several of the firefighters had just come from the townhome fire in Moorestown. They used hydrant runoff to cool off, and ambulance crews were on hand in case any got overheated.

Their quick work kept this fire from spreading and extra firefighters helped the first of the responders catch a break and cool drink.

Still, Keeley said so many were drenched in sweat.

For a time, fire crews had one lane of the three on Route 130 southbound closed.
