November 27, 1997

On Thanksgiving night, chief 22-1 reported a large volume of smoke appearing across from his residence, which seemed to be coming from behind the Don's Food Rite parking lot. Upon investigation, he discovered a fire in the Dracool Manufacturing Building on South Second Street and requested a structure assignment be dispatched. The dispatch brought Engine and Truck 22, Engine and Squad 23, and Engine 24. All units responded. Engine-22 positioned at side-1. Truck-22 set up behind the Engine and went to the roof. The fire was located to the rear of the second floor of the building in the office area. Unable to reach the seat of the fire from the Truck's location, Chief 22 requested Truck-20 to the scene. Upon their arrival, they set up in the alley on side-3 of the structure. An interior crew entered the building from side-1 and advanced a line to the second floor, where they were met with heavy fire and were able to achieve a knockdown. Positive Pressure ventilation was set up and the remaining smoke was cleared from the building. Extensive overhaul was performed by units on scene. Fire was believed to have started from a faulty coffee maker on a desk in the second floor office.
