Atlantic City rooming house fire displaces 17 people

A rooming house fire displaced 17 people New Year’s Eve.
The call came in around 6:30 p.m., and the fire was contained to a third-floor unit at 1401 Memorial Avenue, Fire Chief Scott Evans said.
“It was a great job by the first-in engine company,” he said.
Acting Capt. Paul Hess and his crew stretched a hose down the alley and up three flights of stairs to contain it to the third-floor bedroom, Evans said.
But smoke and water damage will cause more to be evacuated.
They will be relocated with help from the owner and the Red Cross, Evans said.


Plt. 3 E1, E2, L1, R1, and BC1 working fire 1401 Memorial Ave. Avoid area.
