The 22-1 box alerted for a report of black smoke coming from the chimney at 421 Main Street in Lykens bringing the structure box response of companies 22, 23, 21, and 24. Chief 22 went enroute POV and on his arrival side A reported normal conditions at a 2 story wood frame dwelling with a hair salon on the first floor that was closed. Engine 22 responded with 4 and approached from the Market Street side and stopped short at the A/D corner. Command advised not to lay in to the scene. Truck 22 responded with 3 and approached from the West Street side and took the address. Command held the box to Company 22. Crews found access to the basement on the C side through bilko doors and entered the basement to find a malfunctioning furnace. Power to the furnace was shut down. The Truck crew set up and took the boom to the chimney top and ran the chains while the Engine crew set up a fan in the basement and pulled off the piping to the chimney. The chains were run in the chimney and the fan vented out the basement. The property owner on scene had contacted her furnace service company and they were sending a rep to examine the furnace. After clearing the basement and roof, the crews returned to service and Command placed the box available.
