The 22-1 box was dispatched for a report of a smoke alarm sounding in a apartment building located at 506 Market Street in Lykens. With the Truck and Utility working a commercial structure fire in Reinerton, the dispatch called for Engine 22, Engine 27 which was standing by at station 23, and Truck 20 in place of Truck 22 which was in Reinerton. Chief 22-1 responded POV to the scene, and Engine 22 responded with 3. Engine 27 responded from station 23 with 5 and arrived on scene first with Chief 22-1. They had a 50 foot by 200 foot 2 story apartment building with an audible alarm sounding that was heard from the street. Crews went interior, and found a broken water line that had caused water damage to the interior of the building, which apparently also set off one of the smoke alarms. Command contacted the owner, secured the property, and placed the box available.
