Truck 22 dispatched class one to 58 Main Street in Klingerstown, Schuylkill County, for a reported commercial structure fire. Truck 22 responded with 5, and on arrival, took side A of a large, 75 foot by 100 foot 3 story multiple occupancy building with fire through the roof. Truck set up for aerial master stream operations, with an initial 3 inch supply line from Rescue 28, and later Engine 27 set up to draft in the creek across the street from the scene and fed the Truck with a 5 inch line. Heavy fire was rolling throughout the multi-family apartment building, with an attached former post office to the B exposure side. Bucket crew knocked down a large volume of fire with the two deck guns, and then assisted crews working from the ground with controlling numerous hot spots on sides A, C, and D. Temps at the scene started out at 12 degrees, and went down into the single digits when the sun went down. Ice was a major issue, both on the ground, every ladder and hose line, and some of the pumps. The Truck crew assisted with interior overhaul operations. Utility 22 responded class three with 4 fresh crew members later into the incident, and relieved the initial Truck crew and continued with salvage and overhaul. After release by command 65, the Truck returned to station out of service, with the pump and most of the ladders frozen up.
