Company 22, Engine 23, Rescue 21 and EMS were dispatched to 403 South Second Street for a report of smoke in the basement. A caller reported that her furnace was making a loud banging noise, and she contacted a repairman who advised her to shut it off. When she attempted to go down into the basement, she discovered what she thought was smoke, so she called 911 and left the residence. Engine 22 responded with a crew of five, Engine 23 with a crew of three, and Rescue 21 responded with a crew of six. After investigation at the scene, command confirmed that it was a furnace malfunction and held the box to Engine 22. The crew shut down the furnace, which was spewing steam into the basement after being overfilled with water.
