Companies 23, 22, 24, and 21 dispatched to 1572 Pottsville Street in Coaldale, Wiconisco Township, for a reported fire in the walls. Chief 23 arrived on scene and reported a smoke condition and working fire. Truck 22 responded with 7, Engine 22 with 6, and Tanker 22 with 2. Truck and Tanker 22 approached the scene from the west, and Engine 22 entered the scene from the east. The Truck took side A behind Engine 23, with the Engine on side 4 and the Tanker staged behind the Truck. On arrival, the structure was showing greenish brown smoke from the second floor windows on the west side around the chimney. Engine 23's crew stretched a line inside to the second floor, and the Truck 22 crew laddered the building and began venting side 2 of the structure. Engine 23's crew achieved a quick knockdown, and crews from 23, 22, and 24 performed overhaul both inside and outside the structure, finding many hidden pockets of fire behind the chimney. Crews performed salvage and overhaul until released by Chief 23.
