Companies 23, 22, 21 and 24 dispatched class one to 6690 Route 209 in Wiconisco Township at the Meadowbrook Coal Company for a structure fire. Workers inside were welding and a spark ignited the interior wall of the building. Chief 23-2 responded POV and assumed command on arrival. Engine 22 responded with 2, Truck 22 with 4, and Utility 22 with one. On arrival, Engine 22 laid a 5 inch supply line from Route 209 and they proceed back and up the hill to the C/D corner, where two 2 inch handlines were pulled, one to the top of the coal breaker and one inside through the D side. Truck 22 set up on the C side and sent their manpower to the top portion of the building and started opening up to get at the deep seated fire. Engine 23 arrived on the D/A corner, and using Tanker 21's dump tank, set up a supply to Engine 22. Tankers 21, 24, and 27 shuttled water. Rescue 27 and Engine 21 arrived and sent manpower to assist with extinguishment. Crews worked to vent and get to the fire which was in the walls between the first and second floor on the B side. Company 20 placed on standby for company 21. Crews continued with fire attack and gained control in about 45 minutes. Engine 21 was brought to side D behind Engine 22, and one of the 22 hand lines was redeployed from one of Engine 21's discharges, and foam was applied to the building. Crews continued with overhaul until released by Command 23.
