 Truck fire under carport 
 7857 Route 209 

February 15, 2006

Company 22 was dispatched to Wiconisco Township to a report of a pickup truck on fire under a carport. Engine 22 responded with a crew of six and arrived first on scene to find a fully involved truck, with fire extension into the attached one-story ranch home on side 4. Tanker 22 responded with a crew of two, Truck 22 with a crew of three. Engine 22 took the side 1/4 corner, Engine 23 had side 1/2, and Tanker 24 positioned in front of Engine 22. Truck 22 staged on Route 209 and sent manpower to the roof to vent. The Engine 22 crew pulled 2 inch and 3 inch hand lines and attacked the fire from the outside, while the Engine 23 crew pulled a 1? inch line and went in through the front door. Tanker 24's crew, backed up by Engine 24's crew, pulled a 1? inch line and went to side 3 and attacked the fire from the rear. Knockdown of the bulk of fire occurred in a few minutes. The roof was vented in two places. The carport burned through and collapsed onto the pickup truck. Extensive overhaul was needed, with crews pulling ceilings of the kitchen and living room and exterior walls opened up and checked for extensions on side 4. Rescue 21 and Tanker 21 were also on the scene and assisted with overhaul. PP&L and Penn Dot were requested for assistance. Company 22 cleared the event when placed available by Command 23.
