Structure Fire on Bally Bunion Drive Displaces Homeowner

On Thursday, February 20, 2014, the Galloway Township Police Department responded to the 1000 block of Bally Bunion Drive in reference to a working structure fire.  

Upon arrival, police confirmed that all residents were evacuated from the building.  One subject reported slight burns to his hands and was treated on scene by Galloway Township EMS.

The initial investigation reveals the fire was started by a lit cigarette.  It caused a mattress to ignite which proceeded to engulf the building in flames.

The Germania, South Egg Harbor, Pomona, and Cologne Fire Departments all responded to the scene to fight the fire.  The Oceanville and Elwood Fire Departments also assisted with the incident.
