Death of Gloucester County Fire Marshal’s Office K9 under investigation

WOODBURY, NJ (WPVI) — The Gloucester County Attorney’s Office has opened an investigation into the death of a K9 firefighter.

Ember, the county’s chestnut lab, died last Friday.

At the Gloucester County Commissioner’s meeting on Wednesday night, there were some people who wanted an answer as to how and why this happened.

“I have requested several attempts to contact those responsible and they have not given me anything, have given me no information regarding anything. Yes, it’s an active investigation, but we still deserve to know,” said Commissioner Christopher Konawel Jr.

Konawel says he’s tried to get an update on what’s happening, but it’s been difficult to get clear answers.

In fact, he says the only reason he found out Ember died was because of an anonymous phone call.

“We need to find out exactly what happened so it doesn’t happen again. So we can develop policies, procedures and safeguards,” Konawel said.

Commissioner Nicholas DeSilvio also wants to know what happened.

“The fact that they didn’t tell us anything at all, I don’t know what to think about that,” DeSilvio said.

During the meeting, Anna Janda from Mantua asked for a minute’s silence for Ember.

“I want to see the truth. I want to know what really, really happened. I don’t want an investigation that looks the other way,” Janda said.

The Gloucester County Attorney’s Office confirmed that an investigation was ongoing but could not provide any further information.
