Seven people had to flee three rowhouses in East Camden early yesterday after fire erupted in the kitchen area of one of them.
A 56-year-old woman was treated for smoke inhalation after the three-alarm blaze about 4 a.m. on North 22d Street. Officials did not identify her.
Camden Chief Fire Marshal Ralph Roberts said a quick response by 35 to 40 firefighters kept the blaze from spreading to an entire block of wood-frame rowhouses.
The fire started at 17 N. 22d St. and spread to the houses on either side, he said. The injured woman was in 19 N. 22d St.
