September 8, 2007

Truck 22 was dispatched to the Borough of Tower City, Schuylkill County, for a report of flames coming from a chimney and smoke on the first floor at 939 East Grand Avenue. This location is a day care center that was unoccupied at the time. Neighbors reported seeing black smoke occasionally coming from the chimney over the last day or so, and they called 911 when they saw flames from the chimney and smoke in the building. Truck 22 responded with a crew of seven and Chief 22 responded POV. Engine 66-10 and Engine 650 were in front of the building, and Engine 655 had side C. Truck 22 had side A, and sent three guys to the roof to check out the chimney, which was clear. The rest of the crew assisted in the basement. Investigation determined the problem to be a furnace malfunction.
