Ogden was seriously injured while responding to a alarm in Marshallton around 11 p.m. on the evening of January 15, 1926. He succumbed to his injuries around 4 a.m. the following morning. Alfred was one of three Cranston Heights firefighters who died when the engine on which they were on, skidded on ice while attempting to make a turn at Foard's Corner. The engine careened into a tree before it overturned. Ogden was trapped under 1,000 feet of hose that propelled from the truck. Nearby store-keeper Glennwood Sturgis, helped to remove the hose trapping Ogden and then took him to the Delaware Hospital by automobile.
