Company 22 was dispatched to the rear of 451 North Street to extinguish a camp fire set by juveniles. Engine 22 responded with a crew of six and arrived on scene to find out that bystanders were advising that the fire was out and the actual location of the fire was on the North side of the creek in Wiconisco Township. The police department and Chief 23 were notified. An additional crew crossed the Market Street Bridge by POV, hiked into the scene, and extinguished hot embers. Two boys were found at the scene. They were given a fire safety lecture by Lieutenant 22. The boys helped extinguish the fire by shuttling water from the Wiconisco Creek in a bucket and clearing the ground around the camp fire ring. The company went available as the on-foot crew hiked out of the wooded area in the dark and was recovered on Market Street near the Wiconisco Sewer Plant.
