Hundreds of people -- perhaps several thousand -- attended Camden’s 18th annual Fire Fest at Rhame Arena Saturday. Many of those people lined a long stretch of Broad Street to watch as hundreds of fire trucks and related vehicles -- some vintage and some from as far away as Pennsylvania -- paraded through the city to the arena. Those same people cheered as a pair of skydivers, one trailing South Carolina’s Palmetto flag, the other the American flag, landed in a field behind the arena.
