Hazmat/Fire Incident @ Stonard Manufacturing

Apr 5, 2022

At approximately 8:30 we were dispatched to the unit block of East Park Ave for a release of an unknown chemical. Upon arriving Chief 1000 was met by employees who directed him to a vessel filled with an unknown substance that had been moved outside of the business and was actively smoking. Shortly after the arrival of Squrt 1011 and Cinnaminson Fire Department Engine 2013 the container became involved in fire. As a precautionary measure due to the close proximity of the vessel to the building a full structure response was requesting bringing additional resources to the scene. Crews on location got a water supply from nearby hydrants and stretched and operated hose lines to protect the business while the Maple Shade Police assisted with evacuating the area. Members from Westampton Township Emergency Services, Cherry Hill Fire Department and the Burlington County Hazmat Team worked with representatives of the business to determine exactly what was in the vessel and the best way to mitigate the situation. It was determined that the chemical in the vessel was not dangerous and we were able to extinguish the fire using a foam solution. Once the fire was extinguished people were allowed back in their residences or places of employment and the vessel was watched for a period of time to ensure there was no long any hazards. No injuries were reported and the situation was contained without any incident and the vessel was related to the business to complete clean up. Crews operated for approximately 4 hours before returning to service. We would like to thank all of our mutual aid partners, Burlington County Hazmat Team, Burlington County Health Department, Cinnaminson Fire Department, Westampton Township Emergency Services, Lenola Volunteer Fire Company Station 313, Merchantville Fire Co 129, Cherry Hill Fire Department, Moorestown Fire Department, Mount Laurel Fire Department, Palmyra Fire Department., Maple Shade First Aid Squad, Mitchell Fire Company #3, Vincent Fire Company, Tabernacle Fire Department for their assistance on scene and in covering the surrounding area during the incident.
