A home in the 200 block of South Barrett Avenue in Audubon was rendered uninhabitable after a sweeping fire Tuesday afternoon.

The 9-1-1 call came in at 1:33 p.m., and the scene wasn’t fully cleared for more than four hours.

No injuries were sustained in the effort, and the fire was contained to a single home on the block.

In subduing the flames, Audubon firefighters were joined by those from companies in Bellmawr, Collingswood, Gloucester City, Haddon Heights, Lawnside, Mount Ephraim, Oaklyn, Runnemede, and Westmont.

“Everybody went home,” said Audubon Assistant Fire Chief Jim Broderick. “No injuries. No loss of life.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
