Truck 22, along with Company 19, was dispatched to Jefferson Township to 4611 Back Road for a reported chimney fire. The homeowner reported hearing a crackling sound coming from the area near the chimney. Truck 22 responded with a crew of five, and was first to arrive on the scene, followed by Engine 19. Chief 22-2 assumed command. The fire was out when the crews arrived, and no extensions were found. There was a buildup of creosote in the chimney, and the crews disconnected it from the furnace by removing the pipes leading to it. The structure was vented, CO levels checked and found to be 0, and the homeowner advised to contact a repair service. The Truck crew was notified by dispatch of another call in Schuylkill County (see call #64) and cleared this event to respond to the new call.
