Fire Station 8 Temporarily Closed

Lincoln Fire and Rescue (LFR) has temporarily closed Station 8 at 17th and Van Dorn streets while repairs are made on the heating and cooling system. Fire Chief Niles Ford said the station was closed Monday because of a foul odor. After initial repairs were begun, leaks were discovered from at least two different locations, including the station's restroom. Personnel and equipment have been relocated to Station 1, 18th and "Q" streets, and Station 4, 27th St. and Old Cheney Road, in order to maintain a productive response time. Ford said Station 8 will reopen as soon as it is safe for firefighters to return. Station 8 was built in 1958.
