The 27-5 box dispatched class one for a structure fire at 502 Indian Trail Road in Lykens Township bringing companies 27, 26, 28, 21, 23, and Truck 22. Truck 22 responded with 7 and while enroute was advised by command 27 of a column and the box was upgraded to a first alarm, bringing additional resources from 20, 216, 35 for an air unit, and Schuylkill County for an Engine from Klingerstown and one from Sacramento. Utility 22 also responded with 1. Command instructed the Truck that upon their arrival they should proceed in the first driveway and set up on the C side of the building and ventilate. Truck 22 arrived on scene of a 35 by 100 foot 2 story commercial building with heavy fire blowing out the C side and heavy black smoke coming from the roof. The Truck set up on the C/D corner and vented the D side Gable, pulled the roof ridge vent, and set up ladders on the C side of the building while crews from the other companies were attempting a knockdown of the fire. When conditions worsened Command ordered everyone out of the building and they transitioned to an external defensive attack from multiple sides. When the bulk of the heavy fire was knocked down crews re-entered the building and began transitioning back to an offensive attack. An extended period of extinguishment was needed before Command marked control. Crews then began extensive overhaul. The Truck was eventually re-positioned to the B/C corner and set up to extinguish any visible fire from the roof area while overhauling the C side second floor walls. Chief 22 requested that Schuylkill County Rescue Engine 22-11 from Muir be relocated to Station 22. They responded with 3 and relocated to Station 22 where they remained until the return of the Truck. Engine 32 transferred to Station 21 for the event as well. Command released the Truck and the Company went available.
