The 23-2 structure box dispatched class one to 178 Market Street in Wiconisco Township for a structure fire. Companies 23, 22, 24, 21 and 27 on the call with EMS from 24. Chief 22-2 who lives 4 doors down from the address responded to the front of the structure and reported smoke showing from a two and one half story duplex wood frame structure and proceeded to get all occupants out of both sides of the building. Truck 22 responded with 6 and arrived on side A and had smoke pushing out the second floor windows on the C/D corner. Engine 22 responded with 6 and laid a 5 inch line from the hydrant in the middle of the 300 block of Market Street in Lykens over the bridge to just behind Truck 22 on the A/B corner. As the Truck crew was laddering the building the engine crew pulled a line and took it to the C side of the structure as Engine 23 was pulling in on the D/A corner. Chief 23 arrived and assumed command of the incident. They took a line in the front door side A. Engine 21 arrived behind Engine 23 and staged and sent manpower forward to assist. Engine 24 arrived by way of the Lykens side of the structure and staged behind Engine 22 and sent manpower forward. Rescue 21 arrived and staged in the 200 block of Market Street with Utility 22 which responded with 3. Engine 27 arrived from the Market Street side and assumed the RIT assignment. Crews from all companies went interior and the bulk of the fire was knocked down quickly in a second floor bedroom on the C/D corner of the upper side duplex. The Truck crew vented the roof and additional crew members began clearing out debris on the A and C sides that were wet down by hose lines. Extensive overhaul was performed and command marked control. Crews began wrapping up lines and command placed units available as they picked up from the scene.
