While company members were enroute to the Elizabethville Cemetery for grave side services for deceased Chief of Fire Police Barry Esterline, Tanker-22 was dispatched to respond to a structure fire at 21 James Street in Washington Township.

The tanker responded with a crew of two, while several company members left the funeral procession to return to Station 22. Engine-22 was dispatched to respond, and responded with a crew of six, several of whom had returned from the funeral procession. The Engine was staged, and manpower was sent to the structure to assist in suppression activities and overhaul. The crew assisted companies 21, 20, and 26 until released by command. An assistant chief from Elizabethville, reported that flames from this fire were visible from over a mile away while he was responding to the call. Elizabethville's Chief Galen Lentz directed the hose teams through the garage and into the family room attached to the rear of the house, where it was found to be fully ablaze.
