 Structure Fire 
 521 Pottsville Street 

January 8, 1996

Less than 24 hours after a 28 inch snowfall, companies 22, 23 and 24 were dispatched at 12:20 PM to 521 Pottsville Street in Wiconisco for a structure fire. Units arrived on the scene to find a two-story wood-frame building with heavy fire and smoke pouring from the front second floor windows. Just getting to the location was an adventure, and it was fortunate that there was little or no traffic on the roads. One of Company-22's crew, a firefighter of short stature, went around to the side entrance by hopping the yard fence and disappeared in the snow. He was located and pulled out rather quickly. One of the 'taller' guys made a path. Fire was contained to the second floor, with some water damage to first floor. The cause was determined to be electrical.
