The fire started around 9:30 a.m. in the 4500 block of West Haddon Avenue, in a one-story building that is about two blocks long. Buyers Flea Market is listed at that location. Over the course of the morning and afternoon, the fire was raised to a 4-11 alarm, bringing at least 160 firefighters to the scene.
Heavy black smoke was seen pouring from the roof of the building.
“When we initially got here, there was a report of two people trapped in the bathroom inside. When the engine companies got in there, they found one lady in the bathroom, and she immediately ran when we got her outside. … She was in good condition,” said Deputy District Fire Chief Joe Roccasalva.
