A first alarm assignment was dispatched for a report of a structure fire at 316 North Street in Lykens, bringing Engine and Truck 22, Engines 23 and 24, Rescue 21, and Schuylkill County Air-light 66-60. Engine-22 responded with a crew of five, Truck 22 with a crew of five, and Chief 22 responded POV to the scene. Upon arrival, Engine-22 took side-A/B and saw heavy black and brown smoke pushing out of the chimney, with some smoke also showing from a basement window. Truck-22 arrived and took side-A, and laddered the building. The first-in crew pulled a line and advanced it to the rear of the structure to the outside cellar door, where entry was made. Once inside the basement, no fire was found, but smoke was surrounding the area around the furnace. The furnace was shut down and the pipe to the chimney was pulled. Mutual Aid units began arriving. Engine-23 was staged behind Engine-22 followed by Engine-24 and Air-light 66-60. Rescue-21 staged behind Truck-22. Command held the box to Companies 22 and 23, releasing all others including EMS. A PPV fan was used to ventilate smoke from the first floor, and a negative pressure fan was set up at the basement window next to the furnace. The furnace was cooled down with a CO2 extinguisher and ventilation was completed in the basement. The house was turned over to the owner, who was advised that the furnace was damaged beyond use and was inoperable. The units on the scene were placed available.
