Firefighters work to control a multi-alarm blaze at the former Concord Chemical Company in Camden, N.J., Sunday, June 19. The blaze erupted at the vacant chemical plant just before sunrise Sunday in one of the country's poorest cities, causing the building to partially collapse and forcing firefighters to evacuate nearby homes. The fire at Concord Chemical Inc. in Camden, across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, comes more than a week after fires at an abandoned tire factory and a downtown warehouse.
