1934
Car Fire, Park View Terrace
Detail >>
Mr. Hyman Fetterhoff, of Lykens, employed at the Morris Forman furniture establishment, had an unfortunate event on Saturday evening, October 13, 1934, just at dusk, when his Ford coupe caught fire and was totally demolished in front of the Park View Terrace on West Main Street. Mr. Fetterhoff had just replenished his gas tank at Phillip Jones on West Main Street when in some unexplainable manner, his car ignited. The firemen of the Lykens Fire Department responded to a call and subdued the flames, only after the car was so badly burned that it was beyond repair.

Detail >>
Company-22 was dispatched for reported smoke coming from a camping trailer parked to the rear of 326 Pine Street in the borough. Engine-22 and Chief-22 arived on scene and found smoke coming from a camper parked next to a large garage. The interior crew entered and discovered a malfunctioning microwave oven that had shorted. Shortly before this call, the power was off in the borough, and had only been restored moments before the homeowner looked out her back window and observed smoke coming from the camper.

Detail >>
Company 22 dispatched class three to 512 Market Street in Lykens for a fuel spill. Chief 22 responded to the scene, and Engine 22 responded with 5. On arrival, it was determined that there was no fuel spill, rather contractors had been working in the basement with a gas powered saw and carbon monoxide had leaked into the upper floors of the building, which contained 4 apartments. All occupants of the building were evacuated while CO readings were taken. Positive pressure ventilation was set up to air out the building. After all apartments returned to normal readings, the occupants were allowed back in the building and command placed the box available.

3.The listing of other noteworthy incidents includes incidents from anywhere outside our local area (for which we were not dispatched). Also included in this section are historical events from our fire company, Lykens, or around the world. It is certainly not a complete listing, and is not intended to be. It is included here for your entertainment. Incidents and events listed here have been gathered from public sources.
