Truck 22 dispatched on the 1st alarm along with companies 24, 23, 66, and 21, to 436 West Broad Street in Williamstown for a reported structure fire. Truck 22 responded with 4 and Chief 22-2 POV. Later into the incident, Engine 22 responded with 1 to the scene. Chief 24-2 on the scene had smoke and fire showing from the 2nd floor, and had Engine 23 hit the hydrant at Grant and Broad and lay in to the scene. Truck 22 was given the assignment of setting up on side A and venting the roof. The Truck arrived and set up side A and went to the roof and vented while a crew from Engine 23 took a line in through the front door. All ladders from the Truck were pulled and placed on sides A, B, and D. Engine 23's hose lay was completed by Engine 66 on their arrival. Multiple units failed and County replaced them with others, and command requested the 2nd alarm. This brought Engines and Tankers from 20, 26, 27, 38, 216, and an Engine and Ladder from Pine Grove. Other Schuylkill County Companies included Muir, Joliett, and Tower City. Canteen 29 was requested to the scene. Crews worked on interior fire but were hampered by the buildings construction, balloon frame with no fire stops. After knockdown, extensive overhaul was required. Multiple companies were relocated to cover vacant stations, with Engine 35 (Linglestown) in Station 22. Crew continued overhaul until released by command.
