The 21-1 box was dispatched for a reported structure fire at 41 Main Street in Elizabethville. This brought companies 21, Truck 20, and Engine 26. Chief 21-1, when pulling out of station 21 2 blocks away, reported a column visible and requested the first alarm, bringing companies 22, 29, and the rest of companies 20 and 26. Truck 22 responded with 7 and Utility 22 with 1. Command 21 requested the second alarm, bringing companies 216, 23, 27, and 28 to the scene. On arrival of the truck, they took side A with the first due Truck assignment and went in service, going to the roof and taking out upper floor windows before venting the original fire building and then the exposure building to the East as fire had extended to it. The original fire building was actually located at 44 West Main Street, a 2 1/2 story brick frame duplex structure. The East exposure building at 42 West Main Street, a 2 1/2 story wood frame duplex, had fire in the C/D bedroom with extension into the attic.

The other half of each duplex at 40 and 46 West Main Street was checked for extensions with none found. Schuylkill Rescue Engine 650 from Muir was relocated to Station 22.
