The 22-1 box was dispatched for a report of a structure fire at 656 South Second Street in Lykens. Chief 22 responded POV to the scene, and Engine and Truck 22 responded class one each with 5. Engine 23 and Rescue 21 also responded. Command 22 found no signs of fire but had a slight smell of something burning, possibly electrical in nature. Command held the box to company 22 units and Engine 23. Truck and Engine 22 arrived on side A from opposite directions and sent crews from the engine interior to investigate while the truck crew laddered the building to check the chimney. Engine 23 stood by at the hydrant at South Second and Spruce Streets, and was shortly released to respond to a CO call in their own first due. Further investigation in the basement of the structure found a burned out deep freezer motor. The freezer was secured, the home owner advised, and command placed the box available.
