Company-22 was dispatched to 656 North Street in Lykens for a CO alarm activation. Engine-22 responded with a crew of six and Truck-22 responded with a crew of four. This location had a similar CO problem about two months previous. Captain-22 had command. The first in crew monitored the air and got high readings in the basement and first floor. An examination of the furnace in the basement revealed a coal furnace that was running, but had no coal fed into the manual hopper. The furnace was shut off and PPV was started. After ventilating the home, additional CO level readings were taken. When the readings dropped to 0ppm, the property was released back to the occupants. The temperature was in the 90?F range and crews rotated out after two trips inside the house. Medic-6 set up rehab and ran checks on all crew members. The company was released by command and went available.
